Unfortunately, due to the World Wide II, pretty much all the plantations in Japan, including the tea ones, were switched to crop cultivation for the government. Only after the end of the war, the Japanese tea cultivation was reestablished & thanks to their tea exports to the USA the demand for Japanese teas peaked in 1975.

While almost all the zairai trees were replaced by the Yabukita varietal clones, some of the old tea trees were left intact.
