Japanese

Tea seeds transported from China to Japan in 805 AD by a Buddhist monk began the cultivation of some of the world's finest green teas.

The most important tea growing district is Shizouka, which lies in the picturesque surroundings at the foot of the holy mountain Fuji. Half of Japan's tea is cultivated here, especially Sencha. Other important areas are Kagoshima on the island of Kyushu and Uji district of Kyoto.
Japan produces soley green tea and interestingly, exports most of its tea crop each year.

When infused, these top grade teas are sweet, fresh, vegetal tasting and vividly green. Flavors can also be earthy and nutty tasting depending on the processing of each tea.

Please note that all of our current stock of Japanese teas were exported from Japan before the tragic Japanese tsunami and subsequent Fukushima disaster. Supplies in the future may be limited.
