Meet the Growers of Tealet

Aloha Steepster Community!

I am happy to introduce the growers of our network. You can learn more about them on our website and buy their teas. http://tealet.com/growers In particular I would like to introduce the growers of Wazuka, Kyoto, Japan.

Akky-san is the grower of Kyoto Obubu Tea Plantations, a company that many of you may be familiar with. He’s an absolute character and his main passion is producing the finest tea he can. Meet him in this video: https://vimeo.com/53745796

Osamu or “Sam” has been refining his tea farming skill in Wazuka alongside Akky-san, but has been managing his own leased fields independently for the past three years. He has 2.5 hectares of tea; a portion of them dedicated to organic cultivation. He makes an amazing black tea! Have you tasted Japanese black tea before? Here is a video interview with him: https://vimeo.com/53748463
