Every year in the new tea season at the beginning of April, the CEO, Tanimoto, who has certificate of "Tea Appraiser Six Dan", goes to Kyoto, Shizuoka, Kagoshima and other parts of the country. And check the quality of tea leaves from the condition of the tea garden, the growth condition, color and smell with his experience. Only choose the high quality of tea leaves and purchase the quantity necessary for production for one year.

The best drink in the world “delicious and healthy Japanese tea.”

Green tea, Oolong tea, and black tea are made from the same tree, but taste differently because of the baking time. Oolong tea and black tea are said to be enjoyed the smell, rather than the taste of green tea. Besides, the green tea also has different health benefits in different making way.

In Tsubo City, we have researched deep steamed tea and oolong tea independently from the idea that tea contributes to health. Deep-steamed tea is, as the name suggests, steamed tea leaves longer than usual during the manufacturing process. It can be expected that a large amount of catechin, which suppresses antioxidant and detoxification effects and absorption of fat and sugar, is exuded in large amounts, including amino acids that are umami components. Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture, the country with the lowest cancer mortality rate, is also known as a producer of deep steamed tea, and drinking plenty of tea on a regular basis is considered to be a secret of health.
