The Japanese tea shop Jugetsudo was started in 1980 by Maruyama Nori, the nori (dried seaweed) merchant that was founded in 1854. More than 160 years of tradition and experience pursuing the highest quality ingredients along with the spirit of “Cha-Zen” promise an enjoyable fragrance of tea that will stimulate your senses while providing a sense of comfort.
Jugetsudo opened a tea shop in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés quarter of Paris in 2008. Our authentic Japanese tea has been well received among the people in Paris, the connoisseurs of good food.
Jugetsudo has just started reaching out to the customers in the U.S. The Portland Japanese Garden is now serving our tea at their newly opened tea room, called Umami Cafe and their gift shop also carries our products.
Jugetsudo means “the place from where one looks at the moon.” When we look at the moon, we become humble and truly appreciate its eternal beauty. Jugetsudo would like to offer the bounty of nature through our high-quality tea in a humble and honest way.
