Some raw tea leaves grown in Shizuoka prefecture were found to have excessive level of radioactive cesium. What is worse Shizuoka is/(was? already) famous for excellent tea.
The tea farmers insisted that dried tea leaves should NOT to be analyzed. Because it is very clear that much more dried tea leaves would be found to be excessive level. Shizuoka prefectural governor, Kawakatu Heita said boiled tea would have weakened amount of cesium.
well, i might change myself to kind of bitch mode, but what kind of moron the prefectural governor is? They killed tea leaves including low-level of cesium too. And, they exported tea leaves including high-level of cesium??
well.. some agricultural product have been found to be exported with deceptive labeling of origins. Their label said that they were made in the prefectures which located far from Fukushima, but actually they were gathered in the prefectures very near Fukushima or Fukushima, and contained a lot of cesium.
I don't know the truth about this tea area yet. But either way, this is shame.
