About our tea

Depending on the type of plant or the place it was grown the aroma and flavor of tea can vary wildly. Despite these variations, at Hokuzan we never compromise on quality. We taste each and every tea numerous times, until we find the ones that are up to our standards. From those teas we present our line-up. Out of all these distinctive teas, we are sure there is one to suit every mood and palate.

Products

SHIHARU

The concept of “Shiharu” is to bring the traditional Japanese tea culture of our ancestors into the 21st century. We feel that teas like Gyokuro, Sencha, and Matcha, which the Japanese people have been enjoying since ancient times, should be shared with the world. History, tradition, and culture, we would like to convey the rare and multifaceted pleasure in a cup of Japanese tea.

Gyokuro

Gyokuro is characterized by its distinctive aroma, and deep, mellow taste. To create this flavor, Gyokuro is made using a special cultivation method in which the tea bush is covered in order to block out the sunlight.

Sencha

Sencha has become perhaps the standard “Japanese green tea.” Which is everyday tea for Japanese people. The distinctive aroma and refreshing taste are suitable for any time and any place.

Kabuse

Kabuse tea has a full-bodied flavor with a refreshing note. It is easy to chage the flavor and aroma by chaging the way of brewing. You can find the perfect cup of Kabuse for yourself.

Karigane

Karigane is created by combining the stems of Gyokuro and Sencha teas. This tea is known for its light taste and lack of bitterness and astringency.

Macha

In the long history of Japanese teas, Matcha stands supreme. This is the tea used in Japanese tea ceremonies, but it can also be enjoyed on its own. Matcha also adds a wonderful and unique element when used as a flavor with snacks and sweets.

KABUKU

"A slightly playfulness in Japanese tea." Our Herbal Green Tea line was created with this theme in mind. Adding herbs to traditional green tea opens the door to a wide array of new aromas and flavors to enjoy. We hand-select the highest quality teas from Uji, Japan's most famous tea- growing area, and blend in a selection of fine herbs.

About us

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.

Kyoto, Ujitawara

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.
