Our family has been growing tea on the Osumi peninsula in Kagoshima Japan since 1948. Our president, Yasuhisa Horiguchi has always strived to grow tea in a sustainable way. One of his biggest challenges was removing pests in a clean and natural way. One day, after a big typhoon, he realized that all the pests had disappeared, blown away by the wind. With that revelation, he started to develop a machine that could replicate the power of a typhoon to remove pests. After many trials and errors, he finally succeeded, and the water and wind pest prevention machine "Hurricane King" was born. This machine is respecting the local ecosystem as well as our tea fields allowing us to provide a tea that is grown in harmony, the way nature intended. And is still used to this day. We believe that "What is good for nature is good for humans."
