In this interview I speak with Naomi Komatsu (executive director) and Yusuke Ikegaya (translator) of Kanes Tea.
This Japanese tea company is starting to sell its products abroad. It offers a good range of quality teas, and it has won many awards in Japan.
The company has a tea brand in Japan called Wacha Club.
One other important piece of information is a compound which I had never heard of before: chafuroside. They are experimenting with the use of a special tea cultivar and processing in order to make a tea rich in chafuroside.
If you’re interested in opening a wholesaler account with Kanes Tea, just head over to their website. They have many high quality products available.
