We offer you a variety of Japanese green and black tea styles ... organically cultivated in Shizuoka Prefecture, the main green tea growing area in Japan and located in the Japanese “Southern Alps“, not too far from majestic Mount Fuji.
Our organic plantations are found at some of the highest altitudes in Japan, close to the River Ota and Suruga Bay ... Where the most perfect environment on earth exists for ideal organic tea cultivation.
This mountainous, hillside region is blessed with abundant, clear water, the perfect array of daily temperature swings, morning river mists, ample natural sunshade and mineral-rich soil.
The tea growers in this area work in harmony with expert local processors to blend the teas with state-of-the-art equipment. It is a true community effort — with the farmers concentrating only on growing the tea. Then, we work with only one tea company to blend and pack our branded teas and ship to to us in Hokkaido and then direct to you.
Our fresh-picked teas are prepared for us by one of the top blenders in the country.
Our cultivation area was one of the first to go organic in Japan. The farmers there are very proud of pioneering this type of cultivation and their dedication to their craft make our teas super high quality ... Reasonably priced ... And consistently good.
Our teas arrive fresh to you. The leaf teas are gently placed into a vacuum-sealed package with all the oxygen removed. No other Japanese tea company does this. And we only process small batches, which are shipped out the day after an order is placed. So your order can possibly be with you and be ready to drink in just over a week of processing - that is fast!
Japanese Matcha is booming!
This finely-ground powder of specially shade-grown and processed green tea leaves is a great choice for tea lovers, and those who want to reduce their caffeine in take and are looking for added health benefits.
Customers who are avid coffee drinkers that are introduced to green tea are often pleasantly surprised!
But beware: A lot of Matcha is overpriced and below-average quality in some cases actually only powdered sencha.
Matcha green tea is often marketed as “Ceremonial Grade” ... However, this concept does not exist in Japan.
Our Matcha is a great value for the high quality and authenticity. Our customers are overjoyed that they have finally found the Japanese green tea they have been looking for.
