We truly believe that any business can serve as an agent of positive change in the world. Here are a few of the things we choose to focus on to help make this a reality.
We believe small independent farmers and tea processors generally make tea with much more care and attention to quality. For our current range we have collaborated with a 3rd generation family run business founded approximately 70 years ago in Kagekawa, Shizuoka, Japan.
Yes our tea is 100% organic! Grown the good old fashioned way; without the use of synthetic fertilizers, agricultural chemicals or pesticides. We choose to sell organic tea as a positive step towards restoring the important soils that cover our planet, and because we believe tea grown without agro-chemicals to be better for your health.
When designing our packaging we must consider both product freshness and environmental impact. We work with packaging technologists to ensure all our materials can be recycled via kerbside recycling or soft plastics programs which are now available throughout major cities in Australia. We continually research and hunt for alternative packaging materials; with the aim to deliver our products without the need for plastics in the near future.
All of our green tea is sourced directly from the producers in Japan with no middle-people involved. This means our supply chain is much shorter than a conventional supply chain, ensuring transport, off-site storage and energy consumption is kept to a minimum, more profits make their way back to the businesses that actually matter, and the tea that ends up in your cup is as fresh as can be.
