THE CHIRAN TEA BRAND
Ei, Chiran, Kawanabe Teas united
Until 2016, Ei, Chiran, and Kawanabe Areas (that used to be 3 different minucipalities) had been proudly producing green tea for many decades under their own brands.
In 2007, these 3 different towns combined to form one new municipality “the City of Minami-kyushu” that became the city producing the largest quantity of green tea in Japan.
Now we celebrate an historical moment: as of April 2017, those 3 different tea production regions were finally united into one CHIRAN TEA brand. We are now ready to take new steps for the future.

Between earth, sea and fire
Nested between the sea and the mountains, under clear blue skies and shining with the deep green of tea fields, Chiran boasts an incredible scenery that will please all your senses and makes your stay unforgettable.
Chiran tea is exceptional thanks to the remarkable combination of the unique geography and climate of Minamikyushu area. Earth, water, fire, wind: all elements have come together in this region to create different tea varieties of the highest quality.
Chiran tea trees grow between the sea and steep mountains, under the shadow of active volcanoes, in a warm and humid climate where Southern Pacific winds blow steadily.
Tea trees grow better in tea leaves absorb these elements and restitute them in a deeply satisfying and exquisite beverage, with a rich and delicious taste.
Wherever you are, with each sip of Chiran tea, you, too, can travel to this inspiring landscape and feel its beauty.
