About us

The production of Japanese tea is getting smaller year by year. The younger generations in Japan tend to view tea as old-fashioned and every year fewer people are willing to work in agriculture and in rural areas.

On the other hand, Japanese tea is becoming very popular abroad, and some other countries have even started producing their own versions of Japanese tea. We believe this is proof that Japanese tea is much appreciated and loved.

With the mission to connect all Japanese tea lovers around the world, Global Japanese Tea Association was established in January 2019.

We believe that it is important to keep Japanese tea traditions alive while at the same time promoting innovation and new ideas.

We hope to gather all the excitement and love Japanese tea from all over the world and bring it together.

Let’s enjoy Japanese tea together!
