Introduction

Established in 1968 originally as a farm, Nakazen Corporation was one of the first company to manufacture tisanes using Okinawan grown products such as guava and turmeric (ukon or ucchin™). A visit to their award-winning cafe Kurukuma

FROM THE FOUNDER, KATSUO NAKAMOTO:

It all started from my wish for everyone to live a healthy, happy life...

I was hospitalized during my late twenties due to a kidney disease caused by overwork and stress. One day while I was at the hospital a friend of mine told me about a tea made of “kumis kuching (orthosiphon aristatus or cat’s whiskers)”. Without having much knowledge on this particular tea, I decided to try drinking it. To my surprise, the kidney got better after a while, and that is when I felt and experienced the effect of "kumisukuchin" tea. Once I left the hospital, I wanted to spread the world about my experience with this tea. This is how I got into the business, which I continue on until today.

I hope we will be able to provide products that will help support your healthy, happy life.
