We would like to present the ideals of the Japanese life-style, which will include high quality Japanese products and produce but will also combine the strengths of regional and other international ingredients and products that are inspire, or have been inspired by Japanese design and fashions.
The founders both specialise in beverages with a wealth of experience.
Frankie is from Saltburn and grew up in North Yorkshire and Tatsu is from Osaka. They have been regular visitors to Japan and 3 years ago started their online tea business 'Ippuku Tea'. We created the company because we both felt that no one had access to the quality of products we had. The green tea available in the UK was poor quality and being sold at an extortionate price and nobody really knew much about any other varieties of tea. Coffee and beer have had recent revolutions within their industries, now it's time for tea!
Japan has it's own extensive history and culture of tea and we want to give people access to it.
