Generally, the best teas come from rural, isolated areas of Japan where small volume and high demand make procuring them difficult. Kettl has established relationships with several of Japan's most notable tea producers, providing the highest quality Japanese tea to over 40 Michelin-star restaurants and cafes in the world. This is why we couldn’t be more excited to carry Kettl’s teas in the shop. Have their teas made-to-order or grab a bag for home.
