Origin & Craft
Located between Uchimaki and Miwa Village in Shizuoka, the Moriuchi Tea Garden has been around since the Edo period. The tea is grown and harvested by husband and wife Yoshio and Masumi Moriuchi.
The gardens are steep and rich, surrounded by forests. Indeed so precipitous is the incline Mr Moriuchi has built a small monorail to lift them up, and the tea down, from the steepest slopes. They have converted the land to organic farming and our senchas are hand picked and handcrafted.
