|RANJI -photo by tomo-|
The RANJI designs were made by then Ukiyoe artisans. I understand that some say RANJI are the origin of the current Japanese graphics design. Those labels must have impressed on Western people the Japanese tea’s presence.
Unfortunately, RANJI were obsolete for the time being, but recently they are beginning to be revived and used for tea packages etc.
Once again, now is time to show more Japanese tea’s presence from various aspects, to say nothing of its quality.
