TSUJIRI® SINCE1860 日本人の心 「お茶」の辻利


  • TSUJIRI’s History
    Dated back in 1860, it was the end of the ancient Edo period, which also marked the start of the brand TSUJIRI that was first established by Riemon Tsuji in Uji, Kyoto, Japan. The founder Riemon tapped his own wealth to improve the tea industry, advancing and innovating the method to enhance the flavors and sweetness of the tea to produce the highest quality Gyokuro tea leaves.
    He also created a tea cabinet to prolong the freshness of the tea leaves, which means that TSUJIRI’s teas are equally fresh as compared to the ones found in other parts of Japan. Riemon’s effort was well-recognised by many and to attest to that, his statue was built in Byodoin, the world heritage temple in Kyoto.

  • TSUJIRI’s O-matcha
    Since ancient times, green tea has been known to have soothing effects and health benefits. In recent years, it has also been known as an anti-aging and anti-cancerous agent. Not only is green tea rich in vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene, it is also one of the best antioxidants. It is rich in catechin which helps to burn calories, allowing for full enjoyment with rich nutrients yet low calories.
    For more than 150 years, TSUJIRI’s philosophy of offering the highest quality green tea remains the same, achieved by painstakingly selecting the best green tea leaves from the renowned harvest of Uji in Kyoto, using the traditional grinding method to bring out the strongest aroma and flavour.
