Precision in Japanese Green Tea

Japanese Tea source

Japanese Tea source

We source our Japanese green tea from a family that has produced tea for three generations since the mid 1940’s. The family is focused on producing a premium product. The flavor is consistent, and the teas stand on their own. We are proud to offer such fine products.

Their Tea Sources

This family sources their tea directly from the tea farms, rather than the standard method of buying the tea from the state. Typically, a farm will sell their tea to the state, and the tea manufacturer will in turn purchase tea from the government. Because this family has produced tea for so long, they can maintain direct sourcing from the tea farms. These are long held tea relationships, thereby ensuring premium tea from their various sources.

Cutting Edge Japanese Tea

Our matcha is the best – it’s creamy, non astringent, and rich – all because Kyohei’s family is invested in providing the best match for the American and everyday palate. They continue to develop and fine tune their matcha methods, ensuring our customers receive the best product available. This sense of precision is evident in all our Japanese tea.

A Japanese Champion

Kyohei’s grandfather received two awards from the Japanese government. The first indicated his ability to detect by taste which region of Japan a tea comes from simply by taste. His taste is so astute, and his tea tasting experience is so vast. Simply by tasting the tea, he can accurately say from which farm the tea came. The second award was granted the same year that recognized their tea as champions of their prefecture. We have no doubt that we landed on the best Japanese tea!

Testing and Quality Control

Kyohei’s family values quality control, and to that end their tea is certified organic, kosher and has United Nations certification. More importantly, the tea is certified as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System. In addition, they have chosen to have their tea tested for radioactivity, even though the Japanese government no longer requires this test. Suffice to say, the tea passes with flying colors!
