Nakamura Tea Life Store

By Lisa Wallin

Opened in Kuramae in 2015, Nakamura Tea Life Store is the brick-and-mortar store of a family-run tea company that’s been in business for almost 100 years. The Nakamura family, now in its fourth generation of tea producers, switched to pesticide-free farming when the third generation owner fell ill due to exposure from chemicals used to protect the tea bushes. That was over 30 years ago and they’re still going strong.

 The tea is organic, is only harvested during the peak season (late April to early May), and each tea canister – stylishly retro in its own right – lets you know exactly where the tea was harvested.
