ABOUT KOTO TEA
The soul of Kyoto lives in our tea
At Koto Tea we offer small batch Certified Organic Matcha Powder from a single estate, multi-generational farm in Uji, Kyoto. We also offer hand crafted tea utensils made by renowned local Artisans. We are based in Kyoto, Japan and ship globally direct from the source.
Koto (古都) is the Japanese word for ‘Old Capital’. Kyoto, the home of Koto Tea, was the ancient capital of Japan between 794 and 1868.
Kyoto is the birthplace of many of Japan’s cultural icons, including Geisha, Kimono, Ikebana and the Tea Ceremony. Kyoto is a living historical city, and is a symbol of Japanese culture. We are proud to offer tea that encapsulates the history and soul of Kyoto.
