About Hachimanjyu Yakushima Tea

The Watanabe family currently operates Hachimanjyu Yakushima Tea Garden as a certified organic tea farm, factory, and retail shop. The Tea Garden was originally started by Mankichi Watanabe and his friends, who dreamed of producing the best quality tea by utilizing Yakushima’s unique and pristine environment. With its advantage of a warm geographical location in the southernmost part of Japan, Yakushima produces Japan’s earliest high quality shincha, sought after by tea enthusiasts throughout Japan.

In 2001, the Hachimanjyu Yakushima Tea Garden, including the entire tea farm and tea manufacturing facility, received the JAS organic certification. We believe that our farming method is environmentally conscious and suits the island designated as the world natural heritage site.

When we find an insect eating tea leaves, we pick them one by one with our hands. When we find harmful insects, we cut off the branches instead of using pesticides. The natural environment of a tea field teaches us the power of nature and the feeling of gratitude. Due to its isolation from the rest of Japan, Yakushima as an agricultural heaven also has the added benefit of no pesticides and other pollutants contained in the rain or earth.

We cultivated the tea field ourselves by reclaiming the cedar forest. No farms are found near the surroundings so there is no risk being affected by pesticides from other farmers.
