Each month our team select a delicious and authentic Japanese tea.
Each tea is steeped at a different temperature, for a different duration: we tell you all!
We mail you from Japan the tea with the instructions.
We send just one kind of tea every month, because finding an interesting tea takes up a lot of time, and the concept of tomotcha is to discover a new tea every month! Because of that the actual amount of tea can vary somewhat from one month to another, especially for highly premium teas (like Gyokuro or Shincha).
We usually ship between 40 and 60 grams of tealeaves with all our plans, which should be enough for about 35 to 50 tea cups of 50ml (1.7oz).
I live in Osaka and I love green tea. As you can guess my role is to try and select the best teas.
My friends often help me with the tasting part... I hope you will enjoy our teas as much as we do!
Former French expat in Osaka, and new French expat living in New York City. My favorite tea is Karigane, quite hard to come by in Big Apple...
When we launched Tomotcha my role was to pick the best teas and ship them to you. Now I'm mostly drinking it, while taking care of Tomotcha's customers!
From my travels to Japan, I brought back a taste for green tea.
However I was struggling to find some authentic products in France. Fortunately an expat friend was there to send me my monthly fix: I guess this is how Tomotcha got started.
My role is to find new tea lovers and manage our small community.
Big fan of tea, I joined the team lately to share my enthusiasm of Japanese tea culture on social networks.
I also use my photography skills to shoot the best pictures of our teas.
