Our brand ZENJIRO comes from the name of O-ZEN-JI. O-ZEN-JI means " Emperor's Zen Temple", and this temple in present-day Kanagawa prefecture is one of the 10 oldest temples built 1260 years ago. It was before establishing Kyoto. When the history of Japanese tea began 1200 years ago, a noble Buddha monk introduced tea leaves to this temple. 

The first samurai government was founded in Kanagawa prefecture 1200 years ago, and the successive samurai shogunate encouraged cultivation of the tea broadly in the country. After moving the shogunate from Kanagawa to Kyoto where the emperor lived, the samurai shogunate had developed traditional Japanese culture in Kyoto. And the Zen spirit and tea culture popularized by samurai became the basis of t the physical health and mindfulness methods for people that supported the samurai era. 

ZENJIRO offers modern and stylish products that combine Japanese culture and modern science with high quality Japanese tea such as Mino Shirakawa tea, which is the rarest in Japan.

Japanese green tea is the only beverage that can both relax and reactivate.

Our products are the finest authentic Japanese green tea that includes all of these benefits. Japanese green tea is itself a bounty created by the earth. Japanese tea tree that grows only in a narrow range of 30 to 36 degrees north latitude. 

The secret that our products are the finest is in the mountainous region of the northern limit. Fog rising from the river at the foot of the mountain blocks excessive sunlight and creates soft and fragrant tea leaves. By growing slowly in the northern limit, abundant proteins such as theanine are accumulated. People call these tea leaves a natural Gyokuro. Do you think that such a terroir is normal in Japanese green tea production areas? No, extremely exceptional. 

This area is only 0.1% of Japanese green tea production. And share to the total world green tea production is only 0.004%. This is a miracle terroir.
