The Perfect Environment for Quality Organic Japanese Green Tea

- All Natural

IMGP4351_t Takezawa's organic tea garden is located on elevated highlands where  fast changing air pressure enables
the formation of an abundance of mist.




IMG_3290_t An abundance of dense mist acts  as a natural shade, shielding the tea leaves from the sun, thus enabling the
formation of increased amino acid and alkaloid caffeine,
the main elements contributing to the natural sweetness
of the tea leaves.



IMG_3984_t The sharp difference in the day and night temperatures stresses the tea leaves, causing the leaves to thicken,
thus giving the tea a full-bodied flavor.



IMG_4967_t By filtering mineral-riched and mildly alkalined spring
water with charcoal,  water particles break down into ultra-fine particles. Utilising such water in the steaming process enhances the color of the tea leaves.




IMG_0650_t Mineral-riched and mildly alkalined spring water is stored and used for irrigation by the use of sprinklers with nozzle heads that create ultra-fine water droplets resembling that of mist.

This then acts as a natural shade, shielding the leaves from direct sunlight, enabling the leaves to produce more amino acids and alkaloid caffeine, thus enhancing the natural sweetness of the tea leaves.






Nothing but Genuinely Organic  -  Unlimited Passion

IMG_4002_t Takezawa's sole contracted organic tea grower created
his dream organic tea garden on vast lands, where the absence of other conventional farms is prominent.

As the fear of interfusion of pesticides and chemical agents through soil and air does not exist, no buffer zones are sighted in the vacinity.



2014030802_t Self-produced compost, consisting of nothing but ONLY  organic materials like, mountain soil, wild plants, sawtooth
oak, etc.

Compost is left to stand in sheds for a minimum of three years. Such compost requires high maintenance as it needs to be turned every other day to allow for high air permeability.


IMG_0783_t Compost of three years and above consisting of an abundance of air and a high level of nitrogen waste,
wild field plants, sawtooth oak and other green materials, helps the growth of bacteria that is needed to break down
organic waste in the soil, resulting in soft, airy soil, which is rich in nutrients and is odorless
.


IMG_0552_t Soil treated with self-made compost and certified organic fertilizer has an abundance of mycelium, making the soil highly fertile and nutrient. This results in very healthy crops with strong resistance against pests.


IMG_4715_t Because Takezawa's organic tea garden is genuinely organic and pesticide-free, it is thriving with beneficial insects like spiders, ladybugs and mantis in spring to
feed on harmful insects, thus preserving the condition
of the tea leaves.
