The Kinezuka family has been practicing fully organic farming since the 1970's. Because most Japanese tea is conventionally grown, purely organic Japanese tea is quite expensive. When tea was first introduced in Japan, way before synthetic fertilizers, a solution to this problem was to blend this tea with baked brown rice. The added layers of rich sweetness soften Japan's astringent and flavorful green tea.
