About the farmer
This family-run tea estate grows their tea in the foothill of the Kirishima Mountains in Kagoshima. In the region, temperature drops significantly at night and goes up in the morning. This fluctuation creates a thick fog over the tea field which protect its plants from strong sunlight. The tea plants are enriched by surrounding environments such as fertile soil, clear water and clean air.
Tea in this estate is grown using the environment-friendly farming method which has passed from generation to generation.
