In 1690 Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate. The Manchus had repelled the Mongols. King Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his palace in Versailles. Csar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was 5 years old.
That same year in Japan the Yamamoto family opened a tea shop in Edo. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the very finest in the world.
