Hokuzan was founded in Ujitawara, a small town outside of Kyoto in an area famed for its long history of tea making. As newcomers to the long tradition of Japanese tea-making, we feel it is our duty to create the future of green tea. We believe in the appeal and possibilities of our product, and we want to provide the world with a new kind of tea.
In 1738, Sencha, which has now become the standard green tea for many people in Japan, was created in a small town on the other side of a mountain from Kyoto. At that time, the new, clear green tea was considered innovative, a break from conventional teas. This never-before seen tea was developed by Soen Nagatani, through countless experiments and trial and error. Nagatani went on to share his new technique, known as the Uji method, with the rest of the country.
Now, centuries later, Ujitawara continues on that path first started by Soen Nagatani and produces some of the highest quality tea in Japan.
