Diversity and Possibilities of Wakocha 

I want to deliver Wakocha from the Sayama Tea Plant

There are as many different tastes of Japanese black tea as there are makers. We are particular about the variety, the aroma, and the taste. We deliver teas that make you say, "I didn't know there was such a black tea! We will bring you teas that will make you say, "I didn't know there was such a black tea!

◯ Commitment 2 - Hand-Picked Sencha

The taste of our hometown, "Sayama tea" Hand-picked tea garden rooted in the community

Hand-picking passed down from previous generations Good old-fashioned tea picking continues to this day.

The garden has a spacious hand-picked tea garden, which is rare in modern times. Local pluckers pick tea leaves one by one, bud by bud, and carefully prepare the tea. The tea leaves are carefully picked one by one by local pluckers, and the sweet, deep, rich flavor is delivered to you.
