The Soul of Kyoto in our Tea

Hello, Yuko here, founder and owner of Koto Tea. Thank you for visiting, and welcome to our growing community of tea lovers.

I have a passion for my home city of Kyoto, and for the local food and crafts from this region. I particularly love tea and utensils for the Tea Ceremony. I am lucky enough to live close to the famous tea growing region of Uji, and also Takayama in Nara, a village where Japan’s best bamboo tea utensil Artisan’s are based.

I am proud and honoured to call many Artisans and Farmers my friends, and to make local hand crafted and grown products available to the rest of the world. I hope you can appreciate them as much as I do.

At Koto Tea we pride ourselves on offering the safest and best quality Japanese teas and crafts. We look forward to getting to know you as a customer, and strive to offer you sincere and personalised service.
