About the farm:  "Our 4th generation Kirokuen Tea Farm is in the heart of Wazuka, an area whose mountain tea fields and undulating terraced slopes thick with fog make perfect tea-growing conditions. Founded nearly 100 years ago, before cars and farming machinery were available, our mountain fields were cleared by hand by my Great-Grandfather, Kirokuen’s Founder.

Today, we’re in the unusual position of being entirely owned by women. After the death of my father, my mother, myself and my sister took over the running of the farm to continue our family’s legacy, one that began in these fields all those years ago."
