Sugimoto America is very pleased to announce that our factory, Sugimoto Seicha Co., Ltd. was certified as USDA Organic Handler (processing) on 09/11/12. With this certification, we are allowed to process/produce the USDA organic tea. Right now, we are working with an organic farmer and planing for 2013 harvest. Stay tuned for further updates about our organic project!

*Please note, this doesn’t mean our current inventory is USDA organic. Organic green tea will be available after 2013 harvest.
