Why did we select these producers, these teas? From the beginning, Ichigo Trading and Travel decided to partner with Ikkyu-Tea to choose only high grade green tea and make it accessible to newcomers and experts alike. All of our teas come directly from the farmers and we have chosen several types for our customers: gyokuro, kabusecha, sencha, matcha, as well as two less known but extraordinary types, tamaryokucha and kamairicha a rare specialty tea from Kyushu.
All our teas are packed by the producers themselves for optimal conservation and then wrapped by either Ichigo or Ikkyu-Tea by hand. By the way, our packaging is very special: we wish to offer you a complete experience with not only great tea, but also beautiful wrapping for your own pleasure or for making a nice present to your friends, family or even colleagues. For this, Ichigo Trading and Travel Co has chosen a range of Japanese washi papers that will compliment your tea in an appropriate way. Don't throw it away ! You can use it again in any way you see fit. Come take an exotic journey with us, and experience the story of Japan's third largest island, blessed with rich natural resources, a warm climate, and exceptional, seasonal teas!
