The Ishikawa family predominantly produces organic matchas, but also some senchas from the 2nd harvest such as this tea. The tea fields, located rather far north and at a high elevation of 650m, are subject to fewer pests than southern tea fields. Furthermore, because the fields are surrounded by forests, there is a significantly reduced risk of pesticide drift. In addition, the Ishikawas produce their own fertiliser, which is 100% made from natural fermented materials. Since its inception, the farm has never used pesticides or artificial fertilisers. Ishikawa Seicha has been certified organic since 1995.
This tea is exclusively sourced from the above mentioned tea farm in Aichi.
