High school harvests and bottles its own green tea

Students at the Kanoya Agricultural High School in Kanoya, Kagoshima Prefecture, have released bottled green tea made exclusively from leaves grown and harvested on school grounds.

Some may scoff at the idea of bottled tea. Nevertheless, this story is a wonderful example of how much green tea is a part of the culture of Kyushu and how proud the people there are of their tea.

This is precisely the same spirit that our growers put into their tea.

Congratulations, kids. You sure deserve an "A" on this assignment.
