Nijiya Selection: Orita-En Tea / おりた園のお茶

Posted on 10th April 2012 in Grocery

Our Recommendation

[Orita-En] – Teas by Nobuo Orita, the Tea Maestro.

Kagoshima is known for its tea, and Nijiya is proud to introduce “Orita-En,” the Orita Tea Farm. Unlike many other tea companies in Japan that source their leaves from other farmers, Mr. Orita produces all of his tea leaves at his own farms. He will then process the leaves at his own facility and packs them there, overseeing the whole production process. That’s why we call him a maestro, a true tea master.

Flavor chracteristics

All of his teas have unmistakably rich and strong flavors.

Yes, No Middleman.

The orders from Nijiya are packed especially in a separate lot to guarantee the freshness and the quality every time. As soon as the lot is ready, it is assembled into a container and shipped directly from Shibushi, Kagoshima.
