Furthermore the natural leaf tea has three kinds, "deeply steamed tea" and "lightly steamed tea", with the deeply steamed occupying large percentage of the natural leaf tea on the current market. In 1955 our company had switched to the deeply steamed tea and has been producing the same since then. Time required to steam the tea leaves is long and therefore, it is important to secure environment of the tea plantation where tea leaves that could stand a strong steam can be cultivated and to acquire highly advanced steaming technology. Characteristics of the deeply steamed tea are the water color of deep green that comes up when the tea is served and its taste of depth.
