ABOUT THE GROWER
Bata Bata has been grown in Toyama for over 500 years… but only one producer remains: Hiraki San. This very cool tea is created with leaves and twigs harvested during summer. The leaves are cooked, withered and fermented for over 1 month in wooden boxes. The result is a gentle, naturally sweet, very relaxing brew.
