Japan Shizuoka Green Tea

For the 2017 season we are offering more choices than we have the last two years from our good friends at SOTFU – the Shizuoka Organic Tea Farmers Union of Japan.

These form the basis of our offerings 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 in many styles and price ranges.

Over the past several years we have offered quite a range of cultivars, steaming methods and specific farmer-grown teas from several tea-growing areas within Shizuoka Prefecture. This year we decided to bring many  of those back and also offer several others that we have tasted this year 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.

In 2012 Mary Lou was invited by a Japanese export group to visit Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan and had a great trip visiting many tea gardens and meeting with premium tea farmers , and of course we had been already to the Shizuoka Tea Market prior to that on other trips to Japan, and 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 comraderie that goes along with them.

So pour a cup of green tea and sit back and peruse our awesome 2017 selection of diverse Japanese green teas. These will make you happy and feel well-cared for.
