Producer Information


Orita Nobuo san was 24 years-old when he inherited his family tea farm and factory from his father, in 1970. Established in 1960, Orita-en tea plantation decided to turn to organic tea already in the 1970s, but it took them 20 years of trial and errors to find the right method that would yield a satisfactory result. They received the JAS organic certification in 2000 when it was first launched.

The fields of Orita-en cover 25 ha in Chiran area. Their teas benefits from the rich soil and the mild climate of the Kagoshima peninsula. Their products are the results of both a great environment and careful work. Tea trees that grow according to organic standards and methods tend to become deficient because their metabolism is activated and requires a large amount of nutrients and trace elements.

Relying on scientific data, Orita-en selects the type and quantity of nutrients necessary by performing original soil analysis and fertilisation design. Using microorganisms, they can achieve synergy with fertiliser agents and obtain a highly efficient control.
