A speciality of the town, Tochu Tea, also known as diet tea comes from the Eucommia ulmoides tree, and as the trees grow wild in Takahama, the tea is 100% locally produced. Rich in minerals such as vitamin C, calcium, and iron, Tochu tea is praised for its many health benefits and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine since ancient times, and earned the nickname “diet tea” due to the fact that it enhances metabolism and reduces fat.
It is caffeine-free, easy to drink, and can be enjoyed at dinner, before going to bed or during pregnancy.
