In some ways, not much has changed with the Tsuen tea shop, Japan's oldest continually operating tea shop since 1160 A.D. Located at the same location on the east side of the Uji Bridge in Uji Japan (near Kyoto), 24 generations of the Tsuen family have served green tea to the many travelers, monks, samurai, shoguns, and now tourists that cross this important bridge between Kyoto and Nara.
Important Note: It was the Tsuen family that came to the aid of O-Cha.com after our company suffered severe damage to our operations in Fukushima after the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on March 11th, 2011. But not for their help, our company would no longer be in operation. We highly suggest you try a famously good Tsuen green tea today!
