Nestled along clear rivers and lush forests in the Japanese mountains of southern Fukuoka, the Hoshino Tea Gardens produce tea that is arguably among the world’s finest.
Hoshino village — known throughout Japan as the “star field” where visitors go to spend a night gazing at the stars from a mountaintop — is a truly magical place surrounded by dark greenery and clean mountain air.
This is where Yame tea is grown.
With 26 tea awards to date, Yame tea has established a reputation that is second to none. Its gardens are grown with a special technique known as “Gyokuro,” and each leaf is delicately plucked by hand. The morning mist and the temperature change throughout the day give the plants an unforgettable flavor.
The result is Yame tea, an incredibly enjoyable and beneficial drink that has become the cornerstone of Japanese culture.
Similar to the timeless arts used by the world’s finest winemakers, the leaves of Yame tea are cultivated at very specific times of the year, and close attention is paid to the conditions in which each leaf is grown and harvested.
For example, tea leaves harvested during one part of the growing season are found to be high in catechins, which are good for antioxidant benefits, while leaves harvested during another part of the year may be higher in theanine, which is good for anti-stress and cortisol-controlling effects.
Yame tea isn’t just fun to drink — it’s fun to make! Each tea variety has its own characteristics, and drinking it at the best temperature, in the proper size cup, at just the right time, enables the distinctive aroma and flavor to be savored to the fullest.
Weekend warriors, world-class athletes, adolescents, and the elderly have all enjoyed a sense of mental and physical well-being simply by drinking Yame tea. It’s an experience that’s second to none!
Here are just a few of the many results that have been reported:
Enhancement of physical activities: thanks to the many vitamins and minerals that are found in green tea, athletes engaging in competitive sports such as speed-walking, marathons, and soccer regularly emphasize their intake of green tea.
Improvement of cognitive abilities: clinical studies suggest that green tea can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, dental cavities, kidney stones, and cancer while improving bone density and cognitive function.
Enhanced relaxation: Yame tea is high in theanine, an amino acid that produces tranquilizing effects in the brain.

“In 2003, I sustained a serious injury when I fell off a ladder and landed with my back folded awkwardly over the ladder. For a moment, I thought I was paralyzed, as I couldn’t move my legs.
Recovering from this accident was very difficult, and I saw many specialists that all told me the same thing — that I would be in pain for the rest of my life and would need regular injections of Botox.”
“Being self-employed, I had no health benefits coverage. I am also in the construction field, and the Botox would wear off only to reveal the pain once again. I decided to take matters into my own hands and do my own research. My travels took me to Japan, where I discovered Yame green tea.
I contacted the Yame green tea Manufacturer in Japan to find out as much about this tea as I could, and learned that Yame tea is used in rehabilitation centers, senior citizen complexes, and health spas and is also commonly used by the elite athletes in Japan.”
“I increased my consumption of Yame tea and saw a physiotherapist for muscle strengthening on my back. My back has never felt better! I am now proud to say I can help others through their pain and suffering — or, at the very least, help to alleviate their symptoms.
This is a product I cannot live without on a daily basis as I feel so much inner energy and no joint pain from my construction profession. Using this green tea for approximately 3 weeks consistently is all it takes!”
