Hi, my name is Xenia, nice to meet you!

I am a self-proclaimed Japanese Tea Evangelist based in Sweden

Xenia has been a heavy tea drinker for more than 30 years. Her passion for Japanese food & culture brought her close to matcha during an in impromptu tea ceremony performed at the Foreign Languages School she was attending to with the purpose of learning Japanese.

In 2017, she travelled to Japan for the third time & included a tea tour through a plantation in Wazuka, Kyoto as part of her itinerary. The experience was so remarkable that she decided to transform her passion for tea in her way of living  after such experience. She travelled all the way back to the same tea farm in Japan the following year, to take part in the Japanese Tea Master course, a hands on immersive tea learning experience .

She was chosen to take part in the Japanese Tea Study Trip organized by the Japan Tea Export Council that same year. She was exposed to the Japanese tea manufacturing industry from Shizuoka & Kagoshima during this event, making new tea connections & friends on the way.

She has made her mission to share her passion for high quality Japanese teas with you by sourcing only the very best teas & the most rare teas available in Japan. Life is too short to drink a bad cup of tea.

When she is not sipping on some nice Japanese teas, she is creating delicious tea based recipes she will surely share with you on due time. She is also an avid writer & keep releasing new articles for the Tea Journal every Monday. And she is currently translating her English articles into Spanish with the assistance of Sheila, her sister.

The Japanese Tea Hub

Because drinking good tea shouldn't be optional

The Japanese Tea Hub was born as a channel to make the finest Japanese teas available to you.  Often times is not easy to find that amazing but rare tea that very few farmers from a remote island are making.

We tend to favour small or medium sized farms & tea companies, we want to offer our support to those who have it slightly more difficult when trying to market their teas abroad. Growing tea is very hard work, it takes a lot of energy & effort.

The knowledge about & availability of good quality Japanese tea in Europe are limited. Very few who are passionate about Japanese tea know-how and where to find the finest teas in Japan.

Japanese teas are good for you.

Our Philosophy

Sustainability Devotees

We say no to teabags, we say yes to sustainable loose teas. We are always into the next step we can take in order to become more sustainable. It is good for you, it is good for us, it is good for the planet.

Quality Suckers

We only source teas of the highest quality. We don't hold large amounts on stock to ensure teas are fresh when they reach you. There is noting worse than a good tea that became stale.

We brew tea on a daily basis. We test & taste new teas often. We share with your our findings & we are more than happy to provide you with brewing recommendations.
