The biggest feature – fully controlled and supervised production - from cultivation to shipping
Inspection on fresh leaves
Fresh leaves plucked under our strict supervision are transported to the tea factory for processing. Our manufacturer has seven stage fresh leaf inspecting method that do not allow inferior quality leaves in the processing factory. There is no possibility of contaminated or inferior leaves misplaced in the production line.
The 1st step of processing the green tea leaves is the process of steaming fresh tea leaves.
For steaming the leaves, we use 99.9% purified water.
For 2nd step of processing as a finishing process, the manufacturer has installed a device which electrically identifies and removes foreign objects and a X-ray inspection machine which also does the same task.
