This authentic Cha Soba series contains tea ingredients produced by

Tea Master Suehiro Yoneda
Suehiro Yoneda was born in Nara prefecture in 1955.
He works at Hokoen Seicha K.K., a company that owns its tea plantation in Kyoto.
Mr. Yoneda has been involved in the production and processing of teas as a tea master, and in 1991 obtained the sixth-level rank in Japan's national tea judging skills system.
In the tea industry, a national tea judging skills competition for assessment of teas is held every year, with the winner receiving an award from the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. Mr. Yoneda was the winner of the 43rd competition in 1996.
As a tea master with this award under his belt, he possesses exceptional ability within Japan.

Uji Matcha Soba, supervised by a Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award-winning tea master
This matcha soba featuring delicious bittersweetness is finished through traditional production methods
We handpick tea leaves that pair well with soba, and carefully finish the product through traditional manufacturing methods including gogumi (blending) and hiire (heat sterilization) processes to prevent any loss of matcha's unique qualities.
As this soba offers the vivid color and elegant bittersweetness of matcha, we've boldly named it not "Cha Soba" but rather "Matcha Soba."
Uji Hojicha Soba, supervised by a Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award-winning tea master
Our commitment to perfect roasting fully draws out the aroma.
The hojicha, an ingredient of Uji Hojicha Soba, is created with peak aroma by dividing tea leaves by part and roasted matching for each part under the concept of "beautiful aroma."
(The scent of hojicha is said to have a relaxing effect.) The result is "A brand new kind of Cha Soba" with the deep and mellow flavor unique to hojicha.
Uji Gyokuro Soba, supervised by a Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award-winning tea master
Made with gyokuro, the pinnacle of green teas
grown with a commitment to soil preparation
Made with gyokuro, the pinnacle of the green teas of Japan. We handpick tea leaves that have been carefully cultivated from the soil preparation process onward. To obtain peak flavor, we use gyokuro that has been carefully finished through the neribi production method.
This tea is produced differently from ordinary teas. By shading the leaves for 20 days or more in the harvest season, the leaves become rich in the tea flavor component theanine. Using coarsely ground tea powder yields a tea leaf-like appearance in soba.
Gift packaging is also available,
perfect as a present for someone special.
