ABOUT US | MY GREEN TEA
We procure our leaves from select farmers
whose families have been growing tea for generations.
They must not only be unparalleled in traditional farming technique
but also crop from ideal locations—paramount in reference to the altitude
and angle at which the sun and moon are positioned throughout the changing seasons.
These are the prerequisites for the finest quality tea.
