Native Organic Varieties. Authentic kama-roasted tea for future generations by leveraging nature to its fullest.

Mr. Yōichi Kōrogi
One of Japan's leading masters of kama-roasted tea. Kōrogi-san has won the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize a total of 16 times at the National Tea Fair for his organically-cultivated teas, which he arrived at through his rich experience in tea cultivation techniques and a depth of knowledge of the Gokase's nature.

Mr. Kōta Fujimoto
Fujimoto-san studied business administration at a university near Tokyo with a view to contributing to the future of Gokase, his birthplace, and joined Kōrogi-san's tea farm after graduation. While he has inherited Kōrogi-san's cultivation methods, he adds his own perspective and proposes innovative ways of tea making such as growing herbs and blending them with the tea crop.

Gokase town in Miyazaki prefecture is nestled in a mountain region known as the navel of Kyushu, the southwesternmost of Japan’s main islands. It is said that around the 16th century, a stonemason who moved to this deep mountainous area covered with rich forests introduced tea to the area.
