Can you make a decision now??

"Well..which tea should we get this time?...."

Have you ever wondered about your choice of tea? In that case, these teas will solve all your problems, maybe:-) 


Each tea has the special name according your request such as…

*Ryokucha (green tea) which is drunk by people in Kakegawa, known as the city where many people live long.
*Ryokucha (green tea) to offer hearty hospitality
*Konacha (dust tea) which first class sushi restaurants are eager to serve
*Oolong tea which goes well Chinese food
*Hojicha which goes well with fatty food
*Wakocha (Japanese black tea) which is good with toast for breakfast

I guess you have already made a decision, haven't you? Ha, ha.

Can Be a Gateway to Tea-Leaf Tea!?


According to the Japan Soft Drink Association, the output of green tea drinks in 2015 has increased four years in a row. Which means about 6% increase from the previous year. Does this mean that Japanese drink more green tea??? The answer is...yes and no…. ", I think.

"Green tea drink" here refers to mainly bottled one. Bottled tea is everywhere, and very popular. But not tea-leaf tea. Bottled tea is often served on the dinner table at home. But not tea made by kyusu. Many green tea shops and tea places in Japan now are full of tourists from overseas rather than Japanese. It is what it is. 

But, even young Japanese know green tea is healthier. That’s why they pick up the tea rather than soda or so. I should look at the positive side of it. Bottled green tea can be a gateway to tea-leaf tea:-)

According to the company, the combination of the abundant tea leaves and the flavorful chocolate creates a miraculous taste. Also you will be impressed by its appearance because you can see the leaves in it.

Matcha Kit Kat is already on the market and selling well. Especially, they are so popular among the tourists from overseas. I believe this new “I LOVE TEA” version will attract many not only tourists but Japanese too.
