What determines the prices of Japanese green tea?
There are so many factors in deciding tea prices. It depends on the harvest timing, the quality of leaves after rolling process etc. Ichiban-cha (First harvest tea),harvested at the end of April to Early May, is the best quality and more expensive. After 2 weeks of first harvest, new shoots start growing and they will be ready for the second harvest in about 45 days (likewise for the 3rd harvest). Second and third harvest tea (ni-bancha and san-bancha) are a lot cheaper than first harvest but the leaves tend to be darker & harder and rich flavour will decrease. Other factors - previous year's produce is cheaper than this year's. Rare kind of teas (such as Tsuyuhikari) are more expensive than ordinary kind (Yabukita). Since tea is "agriculture product", the demand and supply balance also affects the price a lot. If the harvest volume is low, price may increase on that year, or the quality of the tea may decrease compared to the same price tea in previous year. Normally higher price of tea contains more Umami (rich flavour) and better aroma.
