Visiting the Plantation

Visiting the Plantation

Several years back, I toyed with the idea of starting my own tea shop. I even went to the “World Tea Expo,” a global industry trade show, two years in a row to research and network with suppliers. While I never wound up taking the plunge into tea retail, I had always wanted to visit a tea plantation–you might remember it was on my “tea travel bucket list.”

When we went to Japan back in 2012, I looked for green tea plantations to visit but I couldn’t find one that was open to the public. As recently as January of this year, I asked several major green tea producers that I met at a food industry trade show if they offered farm tours at their Japanese tea plantations. None did.

After much planning, decorating, sourcing, packaging, pricing, and more, it was time to launch. Celebrating with a small party for friends, family, and everyone in between, we finally shared our brand and products with the world. There’s no one way to start a business, so it was great to see everyone that helped us find our own way here in one room with us.

Our launch was the perfect time to showcase our new collections and share some of our stories.

Each collection and product is created using the finest materials, and designed exclusively for you. Our signature collection will soon grow into seasonal collections, and we’re hoping to offer more and more unique products as we get bigger and better.

We just want to say thanks to everyone who has supported us on our journey, and we can’t wait to share our new products and ideas with you very soon. Stay updated on our upcoming news and events here, or follow us on Instagram and Facebook. See you soon!
