On March 17th 1860 the first Japanese ship to land in North America since Japan closed relations with the outside world entered the Golden Gate. Part of the first diplomatic mission to the United States and as a major Japanese maritime achivement the Kanrin Maru was welcomed by San Francisco. 

In honor of the special relationship and history that San Francisco and Japan share we have named our Japanese kocha black tea after the Kanrin Maru. 

In the 19th century as trade between Japan and the West opened up Japan made efforts to sell tea to the west. Japanese and Western tea tastes couldn't have been more different and the Japanese made efforts to develop their own black teas bringing in tea experts from Asia to help. Japanese black tea never took off in the international tea trade but in the last 20 years or so Japan has seen a revival of Japanese black tea. We have named our kocha in honor of the Kanrin Maru as it represents a new San Francisco led diplomacy effort for Japanese black tea. 

We have found this tea to be mellow, smooth, and lighter than most popular black teas, with a delicious flavor and hope you like it.

The tea is sealed inside an aluminum bag inside a tin that can be reused. 

150g of loose-leaf tea. 

Dimensions of the tin 170mm height and 264mm diameter. 

Ingredients: Black Tea
