PRESERVATION AND STORAGE
Complete control of temperature and humidity using large freezers
The tea leaves harvested each year are put in the bags filled with nitrogen, and stored in special freezers at 0℃ (±1℃) with humidity less than 50% to maintain the freshness of the new leaves.
Storing in proper temperature in the freezers for a certain period of time matures tea leaves and enhances umami in them, resulting in teas rich and mellow in taste.
