Nago farmer aspires to growing brand name tea

Date Posted: 2001-08-22

54-year-old Masahiro Imamoto has been planting Okinawan tea for six years in Nago, and he succeeded in marketing his tea for the first time last year. Now the tea has been sold at hotels and cake shops around Okinawa but he hopes to develop his tea into a special brand in the future.

According to Imamoto, Okinawa’s location is most suitable in Japan for tea production. Actually, the variety he is cultivating was once produced in Okinawa right after the war. Imamoto found tea plants in Nago that were planted 43 years ago. He says that Okinawan tea is less bitter and has the color of Okinawan sunset. He now has an ambition to build a factory for stable supply.
