Japan's Riyo Mori crowned Miss Universe

Riyo Mori, a 20-year-old dance instructor from Japan, has been crowned Miss Universe 2007.

What is this story doing on this blog, you ask? Why, it's because Ms. Mori is from Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan's leading tea-producing region. Why else?

Speaking of Shizuoka, just because they're the biggest doesn't mean they're the best. Our tea is from the Aso region of Kumamoto Prefecture, which has everything that quality tea plants need to thrive—high altitude, cool summers, clean air, volcanic soil, natural spring water, and essentially zero industry. It may sound corny to say, but you really can taste the unspoiled nature in every cup. Hmm... That sounds like a good catchphrase.
