There is a lot of quality green tea in Japan, but we have found the majority of it is not that accessible to international tea-lovers. As you would expect, nearly all of the best tea’s packaging is in Japanese and generally includes over complicated instructions or unnecessary detail. This is a barrier to non-Japanese speakers and makes it impossible for them to understand the tea type, its nuances, origin and best ways to brew, experiment & enjoy.
Cup of Japan’s mission is to increase international discovery and understanding of our farmers’ premium small-batch green tea, and one of the ways we try to achieve this is through our original packaging as the diagrams below illustrate:
We are passionate about sharing several hundred years of green tea tradition in new ways to sustain our farmers craft and allow easier access to the hidden world of Japanese tea.
