Travel Diary: Tea Wing Visits Japan
Tea Wing‘s carefully sourced, painstakingly produced Japanese green teas are loved among our staff for their complex flavors, wonderful aromas, and beautiful colors. The Tea Wing team just returned from their annual tea buying trip to Japan, where they spend several weeks each Spring meeting with their dedicated network of farmers and producers, making new contacts, and exploring new regions in search of the finest, high quality teas. They shared some photos from their recent excursion to Shizuoka, Uji, and Fukuoka with us:

Conventional and heirloom tea leaves side by side. Zairaishu, or heirloom tea, is smaller in size due to being grown completely grown from seed – as opposed to conventional tea which is grown from saplings.
