Currently, it is said that the production of organic tea in Japan is less than 10% of the total production of Japanese tea in Japan.
And in Japan, it has been said for many years that "organic Japanese tea = unpleasant taste".
However, the production volume is increasing year by year, and the quality of Japanese organic tea is rapidly improving due to the efforts of passionate tea farmers.
Currently, the main production area of organic tea in Japan is the Kyushu region in the western part of Japan, and especially Kagoshima prefecture, which is famous for being a sacred place for organic tea.
In recent years, Japanese organic tea has become popular worldwide. Therefore, there is a tendency of thinking that "organic tea = tea that sell overseas", and there are many poor-quality organic teas produced in Japan.
The tea leaves used in MON TEA are cultivated by organic farming or are pesticide-free and are produced only by a passionate tea farmers who were discovered and appreciated by the taste of their products by founder of MON TEA, Mr. Sakamoto.
