It might be a good idea to dissociate Tsuen from O-Cha

Hibiki-an

What about our hosts, Adagio? They seem to match the description.

I think this is a new store, I can't seem to find many people that have heard of it, but they seem to meet the qualifications if we are interested in testing it out. greentea-japan.com

This is Phil from GreenTea-Japan! Thank You AdamMY for finding us. We don't turn up anywhere in the search engines and have only just started out so you did well to find us!!

I found TeaChat as one of the 10 hits we have had in the last few days so I made my way over here. :?

I really like the feel of this place too, and feel I'm going to learn a lot. I have only recently started out as a vendor of Japanese Green Tea. That said, I suppose you could say we are taking it seriously as we have met the farmers directly and we have it packaged to our own specifications. ( I live in Japan) That said, I know I will be learning a lot from everyone... thanks.

I think our site and the wording of it probably needs a lot of work. We are open to any suggestions.

I found out some great stuff about a place called Yame near where I live... Apparently they have the no 1 gyokuro in Japan for the last 5 years running..anyway, thats for another topic.

2. A nominated vendor must sell Japanese green tea in order to be considered, at least 5 different offerings. In the event a nominated vendor does not offer at least 5 Japanese teas, a "second" from another QUALIFYING member will be required.
