Why are your teas fresher than other green teas?

Why are your teas fresher than other green teas?

Sencha and gyokuro leaves are rolled, dried naturally, packed into large square blocks and wrapped in foil.

They are then carefully placed in wooden boxes and stored in a refrigerated room at a temperature of 1 degree centigrade. Humidity is strictly controlled.

Freshest Japanese green tea

Teas stored in this manner remain remarkably fresh for a year or more.

This method is the standard procedure for producers of high-quality Japanese teas.

You can buy fresh tea all year round

Teas are removed from this room, bagged, and sent to us weekly. An expiration date is on each bag you purchase. We keep a one week supply in reserve so we can ship to you within one business day.

Order fresh green tea shipped directly from Japan

Gyokuro leaves are usually aged for 3 months (or more for premium teas) before putting them into storage to give them a mellow, sweet taste.

No merchant who receives bagged teas from overseas and stores them until making a sale can match us in terms of freshness.

That is why it is important to order teas shipped directly from Japan.
