It Is Exactly One Year Now Since Tyas Sosen’s Book “The Story Of Japanese Tea” Was Published In November 2019.

  [JAPAN, KYOTO, November 6, 2020—] Today we celebrate the one year anniversary of Tyas Sosen’s publication on tea, “The Story of Japanese Tea: a broad outline of its cultivation, manufacturing, history and cultural values”.

This book is the only in-depth resource to begin learning about Japanese tea. Sosen begins with explaining how tea is cultivated, harvested and manufactured in Japan, while extensively explaining the differences between the various types of Japanese tea that exist. The book also contains a good portion on the history of tea in Japan, and an extensive study of matcha. Throughout the book, Sosen has also woven actual case studies from active tea manufacturers into the narrative which function to illustrate the actual ways in which manufacturers overcome the various difficulties they face.

About Tyas Sōsen

Tea Master/Sommelier Tyas Sōsen relocated to Japan 13 years ago to study Japanese culture. His journey brought him to the Japanese tea ceremony and in logical succession guided him to discover the beauty of Japan’s intriguing tea culture. While Japanese green tea and matcha are becoming increasingly poplar in the West, very little information is available about the background of the product. Sōsen aims to fill this gap by sharing his knowledge and expertise with his customers.
