Sayama is very famous for green tea, probably the most famous area in the Kanto region (area around Tokyo). The roots of Sayama green tea are actually in Kawagoe. You can read more about that connection and green tea products in Kawagoe here (click highlighted text).  {External Site} Much of Iruma city also produces “Sayama Tea”. So while the location of this event is in Iruma city, the tea is Sayama green tea.
