What is your favorite tea?

  • The one that is in my cup

What are your thoughts on transparency in the tea industry?

  • Obviously, it is important. We only deal with Japanese tea and have a great relationship with our tea producer. We have a series of interviews on YouTube where he explains about organic farming in depth. Tea companies (brands) and tea producers in Japan reflect society as a whole where everyone pulls together for mutual benefit. I am not sure if that concept is understood clearly in the USA or Europe. We even send each other gifts throughout the year.

What role does tea play in our lives?

  • It is the glue.

Matcha-iri-Genmaicha

TeaTiff Picks: Genmaicha. If you have been reading TeaTiff you know I am a big fan of genmaicha. The rice aroma and flavor mixed in with green tea is a perfect palate combination. It will warm you on a cool day and on a hot day it is perfect iced. I love to just smell the used leaves and the brown rice, slight popcorn aroma mixed with a slight grassiness. Tengoku.
