Tsuen Tea is the oldest tea house in the world, founded in 1160 in Uji city, Kyoto Prefecture Japan. Since its founding, the shop has stood at the eastern end of the historic Uji Bridge in Uji, Kyoto. The current building remains nearly unchanged since it was built in 1673, and is the most recent in a series of shops owned by the Tsuen family on the same site since the year 1160. All of our organic teas are certified by JONA, the certification body of the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery.
