Ryu'oen of Kyoto
I recently discovered Ryu’oen, a tea shop in Kyoto Japan. I haven’t actually visited the shop, but I received a few bags of their senchas.
I really love a couple of their senchas (the sencha asahi and sencha komakage in particular).
Anyone know how to get their teas in the U.S.? Any kind Japanese tea importers or “shoppers” perhaps?
I know of various (quite a few)online shops to get quality Japanese teas, but not Ryu’oen specifically. would be glad to post or PM links to what I have.
Oh, please let me know – which you prefer (post or PM).
I’m going to be in Japan in a few weeks, do you have an address for this tea shop? Would love to check it out!
The shop’s telephone number is 231-3693; the area code for dialing Kyoto from the United States is 75. Inside Japan the code is 075.
Here is the address: 604 – 0935 Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture nijoudori gokoumachi hairu choujiyachou 690
075 – 231 – 3693
From what I understand, its on Nijo Street.
