Gachi Grower Wazuka Japan GreenGeisha

After falling in love with tea while working as a part time farmhand in college, our partner grower made the decision to devote his time to mastering the art of tea farming. Since then, he has spent more than 15 years becoming one of the most respected growers in the Kyoto region. He, along with his co-founder, now manage four acres of previously abandoned tea fields that are now productive and contribute to the local economy.

Though the foundation of our partner grower’s farm is tea production, it also functions as an agricultural social venture that aims to: share quality Japanese tea with the world, contribute to the local and global community through tea, and generate interest in agriculture locally through education.
