Fine tea made in partnership with producers

Maruzen tea policy – No.1
Creating together with producers
Over many decades we have conducted field surveys at tea-producing regions, held opinion-exchange and study sessions with producers, and even held occasional meetings that include end-consumers in order to make the best quality tea. Using this history and accumulation of knowledge, we have been able to develop our own purchasing routes, build strong links with producing farmers, and provide safe tea for customers’ peace of mind in partnership with producers.

Complete quality control
We give extra consideration to product “safety” so that customers can enjoy delicious teas with “peace of mind”. Maruzen’s policy to deliver tea to customers that is safe and provides peace of mind is achieved through strict controls of storing, production and delivery in accordance with ISO 9001 criteria such as residual pesticide inspections and bacteria inspections for delivered raw materials.
Providing freshly-picked tea

Freshly-picked tea
Tea leaves picked every year are stored in refrigerators purpose-built for tea which is covered in Japanese cypress. As well as maintaining a temperature of 0 to 5oC and humidity of 50%, the leaves are stored in a nitrogen-filled vacuum state. This enables the picked leaves to be kept as fresh as the time they were picked.
We can also provide a constantly steady supply of tea by taking out the exact amount of tea in line with your order and then processing and blending it before delivery.

High-quality tea at a low-price
To seek out the best quality tea, we visit tea-producing regions all over the country and buy tea directly from farmers.
This allows us to cut out middleman costs and provide high-quality tea to customers at an affordable price.
