Growing Dozo tea
The ancient artisanal process behind the creation of DOZO’s high quality teas begins in this unique, magical environment in the mountains of Shizuoka, at the base of Mount Fuji. Our matcha tea is grown in covered plantations, using the Tana technique, a traditional Japanese growing method. This produces a tea rich in L-theanine, the amino acid responsible for the subtle sweetness of green teas: the famous fifth flavour known as umami. Our artisanal farmers care for the soil in their tea gardens, and the health of our consumers, by using totally natural farming methods, free of any pesticides. At DOZO, we only use the finest quality tea leaves from the first harvest of the year, as these have the most delicate flavour and are particularly rich in nutrients.
