Who is the producer?
Wakiyama Agri Club, founded by local volunteers, mainly handle tea processing supported by the members of JA Fukuoka youth club at Wakiyama branch.
We hope that by knowing our tea, people get interested and make an actual visit to Wakiyama in the future.
*JA = Japan Agricultural Cooperatives
Currently, there are few people in charge of cultivating tea in the Wakiyama district of Fukuoka, and the amount being cultivated is also meager.
The lack of successors once caused production to stop, but local volunteers and the agricultural cooperative youth association worked together to maintain the neglected tea plantations with the aim of revitalizing the area, and production resumed in 2004. The Baba father and son are cultivating tea in Wakiyama district with the desire to "protect this tea!" (father: Yuji, son: Kohei)
