Matcha Source Teas – Tested and Safe
After the events in March, our farmer/manufacturer in Japan began third party testing of the air, soil and water daily. We recently received a copy of the Examination Certificate from the Ministry of Health in Tokyo, dated 6/8/2011, with negative results for Iodine-131, Cesium 134 and Cesium 137. We are grateful for their care and proactive handling of the situation and remain in constant communication with them.
Our tea fields are located about 500 miles south of Sendai. This report is for tea harvested this year which will come available to our customers in the Fall. Matcha Source teas for sale now are from last year’s harvest and left Japan before March. We are committed to sourcing the best quality tea available for our customers.
