The Highest Price: Wazuka tea

The Kyoto tea auction was held on May 1, which was about a week later than usual because of the recent lower temperature. However, the quality is really good.

An average price per kg is 20,322 yen (3,300yen higher than last year). And, the highest price is hand-made tea produced in Wazuka town, and is as high as 111,888yen per kg!!  It means about 11,000yen per 100g (the same price as last year).

This is not the maximum price among teas in Kyoto, the highest in Japan. Again, tea in Wazuka preserves its honor!!!
