Chiran is the name of a town in Kagoshima prefecture in the southern island of Kyushu. Chiran has a warm and humid climate and the soil in this area is unique because it is made of volcanic ash from the active volcano, Sakurajima, making it extremely fertile for agriculture. The cultivar used for this sencha is Asatsuyu, which is often described as a lot like gyokuro, even though it is technically a sencha.
