<From the Farmer>

Each leaf is large, thin and soft. Among native Uji varieties, this is a species found in the Gokasho area of Uji city. However, cultivation is labor-intensive, and it is difficult to increase the cultivated area due to the short period suitable for tea picking, and it is difficult to increase the yield.
