We will focus on eco-friendly cultivation to provide safe and trustworthy green tea.
  • Last year, the detection of hazardous substances found among green tea products adversely affected green tea consumption, which caused a drop in tea leaf prices and struck a serious blow to related industries.
  • The only way to overcome this difficulty is through eco-friendly cultivation of green tea leaves to produce safe and trustworthy products.
  • To encourage eco-friendly cultivation and the use of eco-friendly fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, a watchmen system has been established and a reward will be given to any person who reports a violation of the eco-friendly cultivation guidelines.
    • Watchmen are hired to prevent any overspray of agricultural chemicals (fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides) onto the tea plants and a reward will be given to any person who can report such an incident.
    • After harvesting the tea leaves are then thoroughly inspected for chemical residue. Manufacturers are barred from purchasing any tea leaves from a tea leaf provider found to be providing contaminated tea leaves.
