OUR ORGANIC PLANTATIONS ARE FOUND AT SOME OF THE HIGHEST ALTITUDES IN JAPAN, CLOSE TO THE RIVER OTA AND SURUGA BAY …
IN FACT THE MOST PERFECT ENVIRONMENT IN JAPAN FOR ORGANIC TEA CULTIVATION
This mountainous, hillside region is blessed with abundant, clear water, the perfect array of daily temperature swings, morning river mists, ample natural sunshade and mineral-rich soil.
The first tea company to be awarded the Shizuoka Prefecture mark for proof of origin and quality.
The tea growers in this area work in harmony with expert local processors to blend the teas with state-of-the-art equipment. It is a true community effort — with the farmers concentrating only on growing the tea. Then, we work with only one tea company to blend and pack our branded teas and ship to to us in Hokkaido or to our hub in Nevada — and then direct to you.
Our cultivation area was one of the first to go organic in Japan. The farmers there are very proud of pioneering this type of cultivation and their dedication to their craft make our teas super high quality … Reasonably priced … And consistently good.
