If you live near an Asian market, or Asian supermarket they may sell Yamomotoyama brand green tea, and other brands of loose green tea from Japan or S. Korea. I have also found loose oolong tea from Taiwan at Asian markets and Asian supermarkets.
Yamamotoyama owns Stash and their Japanese tea is also grown in Brazil. Good luck finding this info though ...
Yes I wrote to the "contact us" customer service on Yamamotoyama's website asking them which of their green teas they sell are composed of fully Brasilian grown green tea, and which ones are actual Japanese tea and I never got any reply.
The Kukicha green tea I drank tonight is by Yamamotoyama so maybe it was grown in Brasil? I bought 3 boxes of it because it was on sale at a local store and very cheap.
OK here's an update I actually did get a reply to the email I sent asking which teas are purely Japanese, which ones are Brasilian, and which ones are a mixture:
Thank you for your interest in Yamamotoyama Green Tea products.
Majority of our Sencha green tea products are blend of teas grown in Brazil, Japan and China (sometimes).
Currently, our regular organic green tea products are very likely made with 100% Brazilian green teas.
