When one pronounces “Shizuoka”, unconsciously images of tea fields are flooding in the minds of the Japanese.

It is in this Prefecture, its most distant mountains, along the Abe River that for 15 generations the Shigeta family has been producing tea at an altitude of 450 m.

An important turning point was taken when Seiji Shigeta, concerned about his consumers and their health, started the farming of a tea free of chemical pesticides and free of fertilizers.

In symbiosis with nature but also his father, sharing the same values within a nature whose has its own rules, Takuya Shigeta wishes to perpetuate this rigorous tradition. Ihachi Nouen wants to protect its ethical values ​​but also its consumers.

The struggle with nature and weeds, torn out by hand, meticulously, is always rewarded by a climate where insects and plants are living together. This unique ecosystem will become the nectar that Ihachi Nouen want to deliver to you.

Fertilizers are also carefully selected, and are themselves part of the infusion process, irrigating the soil with a thousand virtues: Fish flour, soy flour (okara), rice bran and micro-organisms come together to fertilize the soil of this mountainous region.

Nature is collaborating with Ihachi Nouen to create products respectful of the environment.
