It took Irie san 5 years to create, plant and grow naturally tea fields at the top of the mountains of the Kuroki village (Yame, Fukuoka prefecture), far from any risk of cross-contamination from other sources. It took him 5 more years
to produce a tea that satisfied him fully in terms of quality and taste.
Today, his robust and beautiful tea trees grow using only sun, rain, and the help of a rich and diverse biotope that provide the needed micro-organisms, vitamins and minerals to keep pest at bay.
The rich and fragrant soil of his fields is so clean from chemical contaminants that it is safe to eat, and is actually sweet to the taste (yes we tasted it
) ! The green tea of Irie san has passed the most stringent tests, including those set up in Germany, making it a perfectly safe and healthy beverage to enjoy.
