Takeo Tea Farm – Ise Region
Altitude: 100 m Prefecture: Mie
The Takeo family has been growing green tea for four generations in Mie Prefecture, a rural area and surrounded by the Suzuka mountains. The Takeo farm has been certified as organic in Japan for over twenty years and produces excellent teas with great flavor. It is a family business and they grow, harvest, process and package the tea.
Located next to Nara and Kyoto, Mie is the third largest tea-producing region in Japan. The mild climate and relatively low altitude give this Ise tea a rich, full-bodied grassy flavor, especially the sencha teas.
