Delicious quality tea from Japan. 900 years of history would change on 11th of March 2011 with an earthquake Tsunami and subsequent meltdown of the Daiichi Nuclear Plant in Fukushima Japan. On that day Japanese tea farming suffered a devastating blow that would see our company and many others around the world cease the importation of Japanese teas due to the risk of radioactive material making its way into the supply. Our decision while heartbreaking was deemed necessary in light of the fact that food safety has always been our number 1 priority and continues to be so moving forward. Thankfully in the decades preceding the incident Japan's population had grown large enough to necessitate the importation of green teas for domestic consumption. Subsequently, many Japanese companies had already begun investing heavily to develop Japanese style tea farms in China particularly in and around Zhejiang Province.
