Victoria is the most southern state on the Australian mainland. It is a state with many climates from the hot, dry irrigated regions along the Murray river to cold alpine areas.

Tea production in Victoria is currently restricted to the river valleys draining the alpine areas. Ito En Australia selected these areas as suitable for tea production during the 1990's and 12 growers were chosen to grow their first tea crops over a combined total of 70ha of plantations. Field plantings were first established in 2001 and the Japanese green tea factory was built and completed by Ito En in 2004 in time for the 2004 spring harvest.
