Two Rivers Green Tea

Two Rivers green tea is located on the fertile river flats where the Acheron and Goulburn rivers meet in North Eastern Victoria. This is the most southern site of the growers that grow tea for Ito En. The crop is harvested and transported to Ito En's factory at Wangaratta where it is processed with Japanese equipment and with Japanese experience.

This crop was initially established as an experimental crop to replace tobacco growing, however, the higher than expected yields and the time it has consumed mean that it is now a fully commercial operation. One of the main problems with growing tea in this region are spring frosts which destroys the first harvest. This has now been controlled by the use of sprinklers in the early morning when there is potential for a frost.
