Some tips on the types and flavors of Japanese tea, as well as some advice on how to select our products.
During the Tang Dynasty (8th century), the now renowned Cha-jing-the world's first treatise on tea-was written by Chinese scholar Lu Yu.

Out of deep respect for Lu Yu, and in honor of his great achievement, Ippodo uses a special wrapping paper on which the opening lines of Cha-jing are imprinted.
