I went and visited the Ota Shigeki tea factory, located in Ureshino city, Saga on this Thursday, June 29. TMS would like to introduce them as 'OTA TEA'.
This is Mr.Yusuke Ota, CEO of OTA TEA. He is very calm and such a gentleman.
Mr. Ota is a tea farmer, operating with his own family. His tea garden is approx. 3ha(hectare) and has 15 separate locations on sloping ground where the Elevation: 150-500m. They are doing original organic farming and growing 9 cultivars in all of these tea garden and adjust their harvest time. They have started 'organic' tea cultivation by Mr.Shigeki Ota who is Yusuke's father at the early stage in Japan. This was started because his father got ill from the use of chemicals.
As you can see it's a weed-infested tea garden which proves that they don't apply any weed killer and so forth.
Currently they are not only producing green tea but also black tea, and there is a tea factory for it as well.

OTA TEA's product offers mild and natural flavor without miscellaneous tastes. I felt that his personality and affection for tea are also steeped as a component of tea.
I hope you can enjoy OTA TEA'S AROMA and FLAVOR.
