Radioactivity, Japanese Green Tea and Safety

Results of the Current Harvestings (see bottom of this page)

  

We give priority to the safety of the people who drink our teas as well as to a direct and fair relationship to our family farms that produce our tea with a sensible acquaintance to the environment and natural resources. That is why we only apply teas of tea gardens which are extraordinary careful in their handling of ecological friendly produce methods: Good for the environment, good for the tea garden families and good for the people who enjoy our teas. 

   

Since the happenings in Japan in March 2011, there is another important consideration which we view with high attentiveness: the possibility of radioactive pollution. 

   

For the people in the region around the nuclear power plant Fukushima, this is already a threat. Our sympathies and worries are with them. 

   

But how big is the menace for the more remote regions and the districts where our tea is produced?

   

Since answering this question as accurate as possible is our approach, we regular test our teas in regard to radioactivity. Thereby our attention is not only on one sort of tea per tea garden, but on a number of teas of the same harvest (e.g. 1st flush May 2011, 2nd flush June 2011, 3rd flush August 2011, 1st flush May 2012 and so on).
