Overlooking the Sea of Japan, in a snowy castle town in Murakami, Niigata Prefecture, tea cultivation began around the year, 1603. The Yukiguni Black Tea has a long history. In 1868, along with green tea, it was exported to countries such as the United States and Russia, as Japan’s leading export product until around 1912. For the first time in about 100 years, we have revived the Yukiguni black tea from the inherited tea plants. It is a tea with a refined and gentle taste that is comparable to the taste of famous tea-producing regions around the world. It has a clear transparent red color like Darjeeling tea, has little amount of tannin, which is the source of astringency, making it easy to drink and enjoy the rich aroma of tea leaves. Here you can find well selected tea, made in Japan.
