The beauty of nature in the aroma of tea leaves.
Kunitomo Tea Garden's Riguri Yamacha is created with the dedication of the people of Tosa.
The Kunitomo family's business was established in 1971 as a landscaping and forestry business, but in the 1990s, the head of the family discovered tea plants growing wild in the mountains where they worked. Seeking to return to the roots of tea making in the Kochi region, Kunitomo-san built a small processing factory that focuses on pan-firing tea leaves. Akika took over the project when her father passed away, expanding by using seeds from the original wild plants and creating a managed tea field while continuing to adhere to the philosophy of zero use of pesticides and fertilizer.
