President and founder of Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms, Akihiro "Akky" Kita, visited Wazuka, Kyoto over 15 years ago. The special tea produced in this rural district is known world-wide as Ujicha and is considered one of the highest quality, premium teas in Japan. 

Back then Akky-San was a college student and in search of his life’s calling. Akihiro’s passion for green tea was born by a single cup of Ujicha drunk at its source and inspired him to learn more about this magic elixir. 

In over fifteen years of learning, he mastered the art of growing premium tea leaves. He has been mentored by master tea farmers in Wazuka and over time, Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms was born. The name Obubu itself comes from the slang of Kyoto and means tea.
