We are displayed with mode now at large-scale disaster.

Institute for tea business

The last update date:
 Tea business research institute performs proof test and research about the tea work carried out around zone between Nakayama.
 It is intended that we contribute to development of tea business through production of high quality tea which we made use of local characteristic of this prefectural tea production place in, the saving of labor low cost, technology development corresponding to safety, development of processing technique for tea brand establishment.

Summary of test and research

New kind upbringing corresponding to the making of tea which can make money and development of tea production engineering

・Aiming at upbringing of Kumamoto original kind superior in marketability and cultivation properties,

 Development, the choice of new school brought up in prefectural alone business and breeding-designated examination place

 We perform this and plan introduction to the prefecture.

・There are tea class (raw materials tea for processing, pot we roast tea, fermentation tea), kind and characteristic including quality (flavor)

 We aim at development of tea production engineering aiming at the making of product.
