Tea Plantation

Tsukigase is a land surrounded by mountains at an altitude of 300 meters. Its natural environment is suitable for tea cultivation, where the morning mist from the nearby river provides moisture to the tea farm. Tea Farm Inokura is committed to cultivating tea on this land, emphasizing environmental friendly soil management using organic fertilizers.

Single Origin

The products of Tea Farm Inokura are single origin. Instead of blending multiple tea leaves, they carefully steam and process single variety tea leaves grown in a single tea field using spring water. You can fully enjoy the cultivation environment, variety, and the characteristics of the tea master.

Tea Shading

“Kabuse sencha (shaded tea)” is a method of growing new buds by covering the tea fields with black cloth for approximately two weeks. By shielding the tea plants from direct sunlight, the tea leaves become softer, resulting in a high-quality tea with less astringency, enhanced sweetness and umami flavor, and a vibrant green color.
