Shimizuen tea factory is a Sayama tea farm located in Kamifujisawa, Iruma City, Saitama Prefecture.

Although it is a small family-run tea shop, we cultivate and manage the tea plantation ourselves,

The entire process from tea production, packaging and product design to sales is done by the family at their own factory.

Each tea is carefully made.


My father and husband make tea, I am in charge of SNS and package design,

In 2022, my elementary school daughter drew an illustration for the package.


There are many things that a family cannot do alone,

There are many things we can do as a family.

The history of the long-established tea farmer Shimizuen Tea Factory

Good old hand-picked tea that has continued since the Edo period
The history of Saitama Yume Kocha begins now

It is one of the long-established tea plantations that has been cultivating and manufacturing tea for generations since the mid-Edo period.
A tea factory was built in 1929, and all processes that had previously been done by hand were mechanized.
We are now in our 17th generation, inheriting the taste and passion of delicious Sayama tea from our ancestors, and with the motto of ``long and thin''.
Good tradition of tea making 'Hand-picked' and 'Taste of Sayama tea'. Masu.
In 2013, we started producing Japanese black tea as a new initiative.
We have won awards in various contests for Japanese black tea, including the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award for hand-picked tea.
Making Japanese black tea is a way to protect hand-picked tea from generations and give new hope for the future.
Things that don't change and things that change.
We accept diversity and find Sayama tea that suits the times.

What is tea like?
let's do what we want

In 2022, four stars at the Premium Tee Contest 2022,
Received semi-grand prix at domestic black tea grand prix.

It was decided to commercialize it on the occasion of the award,

My daughter, who couldn't help but see her frustrated because the essential package design didn't progress,
"Mr. Puku, I'm going to draw Shiromi (my family's pet cat), so you can use it!"
Manipulate the tablet you got for the first time by yourself,

He drew an illustration of three cute cats.

A cat in a tea package?
It's something we never thought of before.
It is the birth of a small creator in our family.
