Japanese Green Tea Hibiki-an

TOKUSA Yunomi (handcrafted Teacup: 140ml)
 "Hibiki-an is surrounded by the rolling hills of Uji, in the ancient city of Kyoto, where the Japanese tradition of green tea began over 1,000 years ago. Today, in Japan, when people think of high quality green tea, they think of Uji. The misty climate, sloping hills, warm days and cool nights provide an ideal setting for tea plants to thrive. If you take a train to Kyoto, you will pass many beautiful green tea farms in Uji, and you can sample the wide variety of delicious green teas that are available at specialty shops and restaurants in the area."

In the past, it was nearly impossible to distribute fresh green tea outside Japan, because it was more difficult to preserve than black tea or Chinese green tea. But now, it can be delivered anywhere in the world. More, online direct sales enable the farm to offer a lower price by eliminating the extra costs associated with wholesalers and distributors.

Japanese Green Tea Hibiki-an offers specially designed nylon bags with Japanese tea but also beautiful handmade teapots, cups (in the photos), bowls, sifters, canisters, and other accessories for tea. On the website, there is a part dedicated to history and culture named Japanese Tea Readings that's really worth reading!

"We named our site "Japanese Green Tea Hibiki-an" in wishing that Japanese tea culture will gain more popularity throughout the world. "Hibiki" in Japanese means "touching someone's heart." It brings us great happiness to know that Japanese tea culture can touch people's hearts around the world."
