1. 100% single origin. Sent straight from farmers around Japan.

2. Wide variety of rare native cultivar (在来種 zairai-shu).
Did you know that the percentage of Japanese tea made from native cultivar is less than 3% and is still decreasing?
Many of our teas are native cultivar. They are deeply rooted in the farms so they can suck up minerals deep from the soil.
On the top of any reasons, we love such kinds of tea and farmers.
Why? It's just because native cultivar is wonderful gift from our ancesers and local culture itself that we all must cherish.
3. Environment & farmers-conscious
Most of the collection is pesticide free during cultivation period.
What is more, we are introducing some teas that farmers use no pesticide and even no fertilizer for the purpose of no pullution of the soil and better aroma and clear taste.
