If you would like to sell high-quality Japanese tea, and are willing to keep our tea in excellent condition, we would certainly consider selling our tea to you wholesale and provide you with instructions on how to properly store the tea to retain its quality and freshness. (We wholesale our tea leaves only to resellers or retailers for business purposes.)
Our wholesale prices are quite low, almost the same as in Japan, because of direct sales as shown in the right side chart. Because we have tea farms in Ujitawara, Kyoto, the central location of Japanese tea production, and our tea is shipped directly from Hibiki-an to you, we can offer you the freshest and highest quality tea for the lowest possible price. It had never been easy for you to directly purchase tea leaves from Japan. However it has now become much easier thanks to the internet and the growing speed and efficiency of international transportation service. Therefore, by purchasing directly from us at Hibiki-an, you will be able to offer your customers much fresher and higher quality tea with much lower prices.
(2) Why Such High Quality?
Green tea sold at retail shops outside Japan is often dry, stale and flavorless because of poor quality control standards. We have very high quality control standards throughout the entire process of growing, harvesting, packaging and shipping to our customers. And we have special storage facilities. Therefore, our customers consistently receive a fresh and high quality product.
(3) Product Line and Range
Our wholesale product line and range of genuine Japanese tea are quite extensive. Our tea categories include Gyokuro, Sencha, Matcha, Genmaicha, Houjicha, Certified Organic, and Teabag. Each category has a wide range of products from entry grade second harvested tea (Nibancha) to highest grade hand picked tea.
(4) Is it Difficult to Purchase Japanese Tea Directly from Japan?
Not at all. As above, throughout history, it had never been easy to directly purchase tea leaves from Japan. However it has now become much easier thanks to the internet and the growing speed and efficiency of international transportation service. And in most cases, merchandise passes through customs quickly and smoothly.
