- Our Australian Sencha Green tea is grown on a family farm in the Acheron Valley, where the Acheron and Goulburn rivers meet in north east Melbourne. The family prides itself on producing the finest handcrafted Japanese style green tea that Australia has to offer and uses biological farming practices.
The tea farm is located in the southern hemisphere on a similar latitude as the main tea growing area of Japan in the northern hemisphere . As such, the tea plants enjoy the similar climates of the four changing seasons, with is imperative to its quality. Since 2001 the family have transplanted and nurtured the small cuttings that were brought over from Japan, to beautifully lush tea plants and have produced exceptional quality green teas.
It's so wonderful that we can now enjoy fine teas from our own backyard, right here in Australia. We thank these small family tea farms for sharing their passion and love for quality teas with us!
