Best Vendor of Japanese Teas?
I’m happy with the companies I’ve found to supply me with good Chinese teas (Teavivre, Verdant, Silk Road). But the only Japanese tea I’ve had is Genmaicha, which I love. Which are the best vendors for Japanese tea? By best, I mean good tea, good customer service, and good prices!
Several companies come to mind as being very good-to-excellent on all counts:
O-Cha, Zencha, Maiko, Ippodo, Mellow Monk
Den’s is OK if you live in the U.S. Otherwise, their shipping rates are too high.
Den’s is excellent, as the others have all mentioned.
Aiya has some pretty remarkable Japanese Teas too: http://aiya-america.com/
As does Chado Tea House: http://chadoteahouse.com/
I need to try more Japanese tea vendors! I was not aware of many of these listed!
Wow I had never heard of Den’s, but great prices!
Just ordered a sampler from Dens for only $3! Thanks again everyone.
I too have ordered from Chado Tea House (http://www.chadoteahouse.com) and been very happy with products and service
