Where is Ippodo Tea grown?
Our teas come from the mountains of Kyoto Prefecture and surrounding areas. This region is renowned for producing the highest quality teas in Japan, thanks to its misty climate, rich soil, and near-perfect balance of sunshine and rainfall.
We produce our teas by selecting and blending harvests from different farms in this region, following three centuries of tradition as a family-owned tea shop in Kyoto. Each blend is decided by our master blender, who is also our president, and our teas are loved for their refined fragrance, delicate sweetness, refreshing bitterness, and balanced character.
