Welcome to
The Tea Crane

The Tea Crane™ is your personal tea sommelier for artisan Japanese tea. Tea-master Tyas Sōsen brings you top-grade naturally-grown, traditional Japanese teas.

Contemporary industrial tea manufacturing mainly relies on artificial methods. The industry uses mass-production and exploitation for the sake of capitalisation and monopolization.
We are in favor of the natural variation of tea, which offers a greater diversity of authentic teas that improve our health, and quality of life. This is why at The Tea Crane we admire – and thus wish to acknowledge, honor, and support – the aspirations and the unstinted labors of small, independent, local Japanese-tea farmers. 

By drinking artisan, natural tea, you will experience the tea’s regionality and terroir, a wider variety of aromas, and joy from comparing teas of different harvests and discover their vintage character.
Artisan tea can also preserve the health of our bodies and protect our environment because they are produced by safe and natural methods.

Discover our newest additions and fresh teas from 2021.
