Hibiki-an is surrounded by the rolling hills of Uji, in the ancient city of Kyoto, where the Japanese tradition of green tea began over 1,000 years ago. Today, in Japan, when people think of high quality green tea, they think of Uji. The misty climate, sloping hills, warm days and cool nights provide an ideal setting for tea plants to thrive. If you take a train to Kyoto, you will pass many beautiful green tea farms in Uji, and you can sample the wide variety of delicious green teas that are available at specialty shops and restaurants in the area.
In the past, it was nearly impossible to distribute fresh green tea outside Japan, because it was more difficult to preserve than black tea or Chinese green tea.
But now, you can experience the taste and health benefits of fresh Japanese green tea anywhere in the world! All of our teas are grown, harvested and packaged right here on our family tea farm in Uji. Through meticulous quality control procedures, we have made it possible for international customers to receive fresh green tea in excellent condition.
Online direct sales enable us to offer you a lower price by eliminating the extra costs associated with wholesalers and distributors. You will not find a Japanese green tea of this superior quality for a lower price anywhere.
We named our site "Japanese Green Tea Hibiki-an" in wishing that Japanese tea culture will gain more popularity throughout the world. "Hibiki" in Japanese means "touching someone's heart." It brings us great happiness to know that Japanese tea culture can touch people's hearts around the world.
