Tea Making

All of our teas are single origin.
The tea leaves are not blended,
so the tea has its own character and flavor.

We want our customers to be able to taste the character of the tea trees and the land.
With this in mind, all of the tea produced at the Yamasho Kitamura Tea Factory is
made without blending other cultivars or tea leaves from other tea farms.
All of our teas are single-origin, with no blending of other varieties or teas from other tea gardens.
All of our teas are single-origin.
