HOSHINO-CHA

We are a tea plantation with an established history and production techniques that have been nurtured by the abundant nature of Okuyame since our foundation in 1983. We produce and sell high-quality green tea grown with the utmost care and attention.

We are tea farmers with a long and distinguished history, inheriting our trade from four generations of ancestors to produce delicious Yame tea, but most importantly Okuyame Hoshino tea, a variety much talked about as a first-grade product. Our proximity to the consumer provides our customers with a sense of reassurance.

We have confidence in our product and a devotion to quality that is characteristic of tea farmers.

“Takaki Chaen’s green tea lines are super high quality at reasonable price. I often send his products as gifts to my important clients. They are always happy to receive it and always praise its good taste. It is great that such high quality tea is produced by a farmer and producer Takaki, that I personally know. I strongly recommend that the potential customers and green tea lovers all over the world must taste his tea.”

H.J - JAPAN

“This green tea is fabulous! It is unlike any green tea you can find in America and is so fresh. I highly recommend ordering some for anyone who is looking for authentic, pure green tea. I was fortunate enough to visit where the tea is cultivated from and buy some onsite, but I have also ordered online from the US and it was shipped fairly quickly. The quality was just as excellent as when I was in Japan. Akihito was also very helpful in educating me on the different styles of green tea and recommending some that he thought I would like. Very satisfied with my order!.”
