Where Our Tea Comes From
Twice a year, we travel to Japan to meet with farmers in person to try amazing green teas and bring back the best to share with all of you. Here are a few things we look for:
Quality: First and foremost, for us to select a tea, it has to be incredibly high quality. We taste the tea both at the farm and at home before making a decision on it. We know our customers want vibrant green teas, with plenty of sweet, savory and fruity flavors, and we tried to work that into our decision.
Sustainability: When we visit the farm, we also like to get a sense of how this tea is grown. At what environmental cost is the tea produced? Growing tea should not come at the cost of the local flora and fauna, and that is why we look for pesticide free, organically fertilized tea. You can tell this creates a healthier ecosystem, full of plant and insect life and even larger animals like foxes and deer can find refuge in the tea fields.
Reliability: We like to work with farmers we can trust. That's why we pay close attention to their production methods and their quality control. We need to make sure that the tea we try at the farm is the tea that our customers get every single day. These teas are carefully produced by small family farms with great attention to detail and quality
Innovation: Lastly, we like to work with farmers that are constantly improving their production. Many of the farmers are starting to grow new tea varietals and experimenting with new roasting and shading methods, and we think that will be excited for our customers going forward! We want to make sure we are always introducing people to new, high quality Japanese green teas and this is a big part of that.
