Ocha & Co - Set by was set up after a trip back to the UK in 2011 and a fruitless search for quality Japanese Green Teas in the local health shops and supermarkets. There just wasn't any! The range covers most of the tea types readily drunk in Japan and have been especially selected for the overseas market to strike a balance between quality and affordability.
Green tea needs to be drunk as soon as possible after manufacture (not after sitting around in a warehouse for several months). We order direct from the plantation in small batches each week to ensure they are in tip-top condition before shipped to our customers. We order, the tea is made and sent to us the same day. It is ready for shipment overseas only 3 days after processing!! Customers are amazed at how fresh it is when they receive it.
We ship directly from Japan. The Japanese postal service is really efficient and the teas reach their destination remarkably quickly.
