We were in Japanese green tea country, exploring the mountain-top tea fields in Wazuka, Japan. It's a small farming town in the Kyoto Prefecture, and the view there is stunning.
Serving tea is a comforting ritual that spans cultures, eras and generations. Here's what helps infuse this simple act with meaning and connection.
All true tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, but different processing methods result in a wide variety of unique flavors and characteristics.
Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.
The tea-maker must match the right size and shape of teapot, the type of clay and firing temperature with the right type of tea and the number of people being served.
We pride ourselves in our continued innovation and development of unique manufacturing and blending methods to produce organic teas of very high quality and flavour.
