THE MORIMOTO FAMILY'S TEA GARDEN IN MAYAZAKI [KYUSHU]
The organic tea garden of Morimoto family is located on the southernmost of the four main islands of Japan, not far away from the town Miyazaki, in the homonymous prefecture.
The history of Morimoto green tea began, when the young couple founded their little enterprise with only one small tea garden. While over the years the Morimotos developed into a perfect team, also their experience in tea cultivation and also the size of their little business grew further. In the meantime the both Morimotos farm twelve small tea gardens, and built up their own production hall, which their mostly manage on their own. Sometimes, during the harvesting period other tea pickers, who are friends of the Morimotos, help them, and sometimes also their both daughters.
