Chiyonoen Tea Garden
Chiyonoen Tea Farm is a small tea garden operated by husband and wife farmers Masashi and Eri Harashima deep in the mountains of Yabe Village, Fukuoka, Japan. The 3rd generation farm specializes in high grade mountain-grown sencha and gyokuro. Established by his grandfather and the farm's namesake, Chiyokichi.
A note from the farmer
In order to produce organic tea leaves of the highest quality, we do not use chemical fertilizers for our farms.
Tea leaves grown at Chiyonoen Tea Farm are able to meet high standards and thus are able to travel from Yabe Village up in the mountains to the seas, and to customers beyond. A New Lifestyle with Tea Imagine sipping Gyokuro (jade dew) premium tea, which contains caffeine and deep flavor, in place of espressos; or enjoying rice mixed with used organic tea leaves. We hope to present a new way of life that brings tea into our daily life!
We had the great pleasure of meeting the Harashima family while visiting Yame during the spring of 2023. We tried many delicious new cultivars of teas that we cannot wait to introduce to our customers later in 2023.
