There is a long history of tea in Kagawa. It is said that the tradition began around 350 years ago, when the first feudal lord of the Takamatsu clan, Matsudaira Yorishige, built a garden to grow tea for tea ceremonies in the area that is now Ritsurin Garden. Currently, excellent varieties of tea, such as “Yabukita” and “Meiryoku” are being cultivated in tea plantations that spread throughout the mountainous regions of south-west Kagawa. The brand “Kagawa Tea” is blend of top-quality teas grown in Kagawa.
