About Us

Hello there!

My name is Avery, and I'm the founder of the green tea shop.

I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan, and have been surrounded by the soothing aromas and delicately balanced flavours of locally sourced green teas that enriched my appreciation of daily life. 

When life took me to Toronto in 2019, I noticed that Japanese green tea wasn't as popular as I expected it to be. 

I opened this online tea shop in February 2021 as a way to:

  • introduce people to high-quality teas from Kyushu, the region where I grew up, and
  • show people that brewing a great cup of green tea is easy and fun, while sharing simple techniques that make it taste even better. 

Kyushu teas, known for their naturally sweet flavours, are appreciated by both beginners and aficionados.

From the moment your journey with us begins, we'll introduce you to many varieties of tea, preparation methods, and ways to savour your new favourite drink.

To ensure you enjoy every step of the process, we've clarified and simplified the brewing techniques, imported irresistible teas, and added tasting notes to guide you in your explorations.

We hope you will enjoy your journey with us.

- Avery
