A note from the founder/ CEO: This tea goes back to the first days of Two Leaves. He wanted an awesome Japanese Green Tea, one that was actually green in the cup, sweet, rich, but not too strong and bitter. So many green teas in the US are just not that great. When he first approached tea suppliers and told them that he wanted a tea of this quality to go into a tea sachet they told him he was crazy. “Americans don’t like this quality of green tea,” they said. One grower didn’t even want to sell to them! He would only sell me his tea when Two Leaves reassured him that they would strictly maintain the quality of the packing to keep the tea fresh.
