Kyotanabe City, blessed with a mild climate perfect for tea cultivation, is especially famous for producing Gyokuro tea. With utmost care and traditional skill, the world’s finest Gyokuro, prized for its superb aroma, sweetness and full-bodied flavor is created here.

Guaranteed Flavor!

Tea leaves processed at MaikoTea have been wholeheartedly and diligently produced over a year, selected one by one, under the attentive care of tea farmers.

These leaves are then processed to produce MaikoTea’s original blend. This “blending technique” is crucial, as it greatly influences the flavor of the tea and makes sure, that our teas have the same delicious taste every year.

Please be assured that MaikoTea guarantees constantly excellent green tea flavor. We are pleased to provide quality tea for gifts and daily use at home. Please favor us with your orders.
