Yamecha is a type of tea produced in Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan. Yamecha makes up only about 3% of Japan's green tea production and about 45% of Japan's Gyokuro production on an annual basis. It is highly prized and one of the first regions in Japan to grow tea. Yamecha is high in flavour-producing compounds such as theanine, glutamic acid, and arginine. Many tests on tea cultivated in this area have shown to produce a strong, sweet body. The natural Gyokuro produced here has been prized since ancient times. Yamecha Gyokuro makes up about 45% of all Gyokuro production in Japan. Yamecha Gyokuro is well known in Japan for its high quality.
