Tea making regions including Ibaraki, Tochigi, Chiba and Kanagawa prefecture have now fallen under the export ban of green tea following high radiation contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant were found, according to a report in the Telegraph today.

Concerns began last month, following sample testing, which found tea leaves grown in the city of Minamiashigara contained radiation levels that were above the legal limit. It is not known how long the ban will be in place, however Japanese authorities are keen to highlight they are applying strict regulations to all their food products.
