The Morita Family

December 01, 2012

A new partner introduced to us by Obubu, the Morita family is an 11th generation tea farm. The son pictured to the above is currently in Wazuka doing his apprenticeship with Obubu president, Kita-san. Their region, Sayama is relatively close to Tokyo in Saitama prefecture.

There have been concerns in since March 11, 2011, about radiation contamination. Sayama is one region that was heavily affected by radiation, and those farms like the Morita farm who were not contaminated suffer from negative publicity of the region.

All the tea offered by the Morita family have been tested to be not only safe, but completely free of radiation. For more information about radiation and tea, please take a look at our Radiation Concerns FAQ section.

The Morita Family is offering their Premium Sencha, Sencha, and Aracha products on Yunomi.us.
