Joint Research on the Functionality of Tea
|We are conducting collaborative research on the functionality of Pu-erh tea in collaboration with universities in Shizuoka Prefecture. The purpose is to conduct ingredient analysis tests and other examinations, analyzing various mechanisms. Based on the research results, we aim to develop new products using a rationale that can support the health of our customers.
Plant Derived Tea Bags
|We have adopted plant-based tea bags as our main products. The tea bag material emphasizes safety and is a biodegradable filter originated from plants. Environmentally friendly tea bags have become our priority.
Adoption of Environmentally Friendly Materials
|The cardboard boxes used for product delivery adopt materials certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), prioritizing the conservation of the natural earth. The design features the image of tea leaves in a Tea Life-like manner and has been well-received by our customers. We will continue to advance the use of environmentally friendly materials, reflecting our commitment to the environment.

Initiatives Toward Reducing Food Loss
|Since the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, we have continued to conduct relief fund activities. At our company, we implement a 'Gold Voucher Payment' system, where unused items such as stamps and postcards from customers are utilized as payment. If customers indicate, any amount sent to us beyond the product cost is donated as relief funds. Through donations from the company, including employees, we have been able to contribute a significant amount to relief funds. We express our heartfelt gratitude for your warm support and cooperation, and sincerely pray for the swift recovery of the disaster-affected areas.
