Kagoshima Governor Green Tea Contest 2017
On August 31, 2017, the Governor Prize of Kagoshima prefecture was awarded to a Chiran tea producer, Nagayama Kazuhiro san, for his sencha. The evaluation covered various points such as appearance, taste, fragrance and color. Congratulations to him and his team for this achievement!
By far, it is not the first prize that Nagayama san has received, but it is the first time in 12 years of work that he won this award. He explains his success by steady and continuous efforts, and resisting the temptation of giving up even in the face of great challenges. In perfect line with what makes Chiran tea so good, Nagayama san’s sencha is sweet, rich in umami with next to no bitterness or astringency. It's definitely something to try!
