Where Orchid Berry Strawberry and Rhubarb Tea Began
While Orchid Berry Strawberry and Rhubarb Tea is a Chinese infusion, many of the legends of Sencha originate from Japan. One story suggests that a farmer from Uji, near Kyoto, created it in 1738.
According to the tale, a man named Nagatani Soen had experimented with different production techniques before perfecting the art of making Sencha.
Nagatani travelled to Edo (present-day Tokyo) to sell his creation. There, he visited a local Tea shop. The owner of the shop fell in love with the beverage, dubbing it “tenka ichi” (天下一), meaning “first under the heavens”.
Such was the demand for Sencha that the Tea shop’s business increased dramatically. Out of gratitude, the owner carried on sending money to Nagatani for the rest of his life.
The Truth Behind This Story
A sweet story, unquestionably, but China is nevertheless the likely home of Sencha. Orchid Berry Strawberry and Rhubarb Tea, in particular, is a relatively “new” creation that has only become popular recently.
