This will probably be the last time I explain this.
First, I realize the poster does not have an agenda or anything, and I do understand his concern. And I do appreciate that he has/does purchase from us. I understand what he says about perception, but some things are beyond our control, and that is one of them. We operate of facts, however.
1) None of our teas are grown anywhere near Fukushima, green tea isn't even grown in Fukushima - it's too cold.
2) The teas are packaged at the source.
3) The average radiation levels in Iwaki City, Fukushima where we are located are 0.14 microseverts/hour, less than the average natural radiation levels in most places in the world. I ride my motorcycle daily in the surrounding air everyday that it's not raining. Would I do that if there was ANY chance of being irradiated? No, I wouldn't. There is zero problems with exposure to harmful levels of radiation in Iwaki City, Fukushima.
4) The released radiation involved at the Fukushima plant is not the type that penetrates walls, storage bins, or tea packaging. Not that it matters considering that is not a factor in Iwaki city anyway.
5) Most of the teas have been inspected for radiation, though that's becoming less common lately because it was never found in any of the teas south of Shizuoka.
6) Last but not least, three years later we've reached a point where we're not going to try and convince people our products are safe beyond what we have already done. We operate on facts, and everything you read above is fact. If someone is afraid to buy tea from us, they simply shouldn't buy it. I guess I might sell a few more bags if I peeled off the label of our company headquarters, but that wouldn't be honest, and it's not necessary because there is nothing wrong with shipping tea from Iwaki City, Fukushima - the teas are NOT exposed to radiation because we ship from here. It might cost us a few sales, so be it - we're not changing the packaging.
