Japan Shizuoka Green Tea

For the 2018 tea season we are again offering a deliciously diverse selection of truly authentic Japanese green tea from our good friends at SOTFU – the Shizuoka Organic Tea Farmers Union of Japan.

Their tea are the foundation of our offering of teas from Shizuoka Prefecture; however we also have several other notable teas from gardens in the prefecture, so be sure to look over all the choices that we have, which are available in many styles and price ranges.

Over the past decade we have offered quite a range of cultivars, steaming methods and specific, farmer-grown teas from several tea-growing areas within Shizuoka Prefecture. We are glad that we decided to bring many of those back last year, along with several others that we had tasted and simply had to have on offer!

We are basing our selection on several factors from our extensive tea experiences with the farmers and their tea gardens in Shizuoka Prefecture. Here is some background information regarding our love for this Prefecture:

In 2012 Mary Lou was invited by a Japanese export group to re-visit Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan and had a fantastic trip visiting many tea gardens and meeting with premium tea farmers, and of course we had already attended the Shizuoka Wholesale Tea Market prior to that on other trips to Japan. We have had so many great teas from Shizuoka Prefecture over the last 20 years that it is incredible to think back and remember so many great cups of tea and the camaraderie that has always gone along with them.

So pour a cup of green tea and sit back and peruse our awesome 2018 selection of distinctive Japanese green teas. These will make you happy and feel well-cared for.
