Tekuno is a San Francisco-based company that works directly with farms and producers to showcase the quiet yet expansive breadth of Japanese teas.
Japanese Roasted, Oolong & Black Teas
Oolong and black teas are rare to find in Japan, in part because of green tea and matcha's long history with royalty and religious ceremonies. Since the 1990s, however, there has been a renewed interest in Japanese black teas, especially for drinking with milk. Our collection is small, but they rival the thick, fruity profiles of Chinese and Taiwanese red teas that we consider the gold standard.
