Through our friends from Amayama Organic Life we met the boutique producer Nikawa Seicha from Ukiha in Fukuoka. Higuchi, the founding family which has been producing tea for three generations, completely committed themselves to organic farming. This, after the health of the parents worsened and this was attributed to the use of pesticides. Since then the Higuchi family grows in the Mountains of Ukiha a wide selection of tea cultivars entierly organic. The variation of the cultivars prevents monoculture and thus an excessive spread of parasites. Also the harvest period extends notable because the different cultivars sprout at different times.
This tea is made of organic Yabukita leaves and brown rice.
