Satsuma Tea

Satsuma Tea by Orita-en selects only hand-picked tea leaves grown in an organic process in their higher-elevation gardens of the Kagoshima region of Japan and produces a soothing aroma and mild taste when brewed. Green tea leaves are dried via steaming or firing before any oxidation occurs, giving Satsuma Tea a more delicate flavor than other types of tea. Since it does not go through the oxidation process, the leaves retain much of their nutrients and are high in vitamins, minerals, polyphenols and anti-oxidants. For more than 50 years, Orita-en has been proudly handcrafting their delicious estate-grown Satsuma Tea to delight of tea drinkers in Japan and around the world.
