Mohei Honda was born in 1984 in Fuji City,Shizuoka prefecture and, as the eldest son, would inherit the family tea business as the Fifth Generation Master. With an eye toward management, he entered Waseda University's School of Commerce, majoring in International Economics. During these studies, he recognized anew the value of agriculture through field work on Yap Island in the Federated States of Micronesia as well as the Kingdom of Bhutan. This experience and realization ultimately led him back to the family business.

In 2007, following his university graduation and in order to properly learn tea making from square one, he trained for three years - including learning the techniques of other schools - at the place known as the origin of true, high quality green tea - Yame, in Fukuoka Prefecture. In 2010, he returned to his birthplace where he succeeded the title as the Fifth Generation Tea Master.

Introduction - A cup of tea changes your life

富士山の麓に広がる茶畑

Thank you for visiting. My name is Mohei Honda, the tea master of Fuji MARUMO tea garden.

All Fuji Teas are made under my supervision as Fifth Generation Tea Master before being delivered to our customers. Fuji Teas are produced under the gaze of Mount Fuji itself, with technologies which have been continuously evolving over 90 years. Our aim is to create a world where people can come together to enjoy the depth and breadth of the world of tea, as well as to experience the deep connections that can be made bonding with someone over a cup of tea.

It only takes that one, small moment beyond the mundanity of everyday life to feel as though one's life has been enriched, the atmosphere made more enjoyable, and some fraction of a perfect world made attainable. The realization of these moments through tea making is the greatest thing I can contribute to society.

And so I raise my cup to all of you; that you may feel that moment of excitement that could change your life or change the world.

Won't you join me for a cup?

Our Products

Our major products made from the skillsets of the Fuji Tea Master, Mohei Honda

Daikancha
Daikancha

"Tea made from leaves collected during the coldest part of the growing season."

Winter: the time where the roots of the tea plant patiently store up nutrients, dreaming of their chance to blossom come the spring thaw. By using the power of these leaves, which hold the most sweetness, the world's earliest-harvested "New Tea" is a mild, sweet variety that eschews the old assumptions about tea.

"Caffeine-free tea made by slow-roasting the tea stalks to take full advantage of their inherent sweetness"

The tea stalks are first carefully screened for sweetness before being slow-roasted. By heading the stalk evenly and all the way through to the core, the caffeine can be drawn out while preserving the sweetness. This is tea created with the philosophy of being drinkable for both a mother and her child at the same time.

"The secrets of heaven, earth, and man from the base of Mt. Fuji - the essence of Japanese tea."

Spring: the tea shoots sprout up, freed from the winter soil. Raised in the gentle sunshine and breezes of Mt. Fuji, this tea has acquired a light and refreshing aftertaste. A harmonic combination of moderate sweetness, savoriness, and bitterness; this is the tea of Mt. Fuji.

"Tea with a well-rounded, mild flavor imparted only by time."

Tea made in the early spring has a strong and rather sharp flavor. However by allowing a tea to experience the passage of time and patiently await the next summer, it becomes an altogether different experience, with a calming aroma and enveloping flavor; the perfect companion to plenty of ice.

"Tea with a bold aroma born from the roasting process."

Oolong Tea from Taiwan and the Chinese mainland; intense aroma but with light flavor. True oolong tea should have an air of nobility, with a deep, rich flavor. This is what we strive to achieve from the base of Mt. Fuji. From approaching the tea leaves with this in mind has come a miraculous combination of heat and water imbued with the soul of the fire.

"Prized tea born by the light of the full moon."

Summer: deep in the mountains, from quiet fields lit only by the light of the moon overhead, tea leaves are picked. Repeated preparation brings out a clear amber color; soft, sweet smell; and a ultimately a graceful, pure tea with a mellow flavor completely lacking in bitterness. Tea that reminds one of love and of Princess Kaguya, pulled to the moon from Mt. Fuji.

"Uplifting tea with a fruity aroma."

The tea plants stores a wide variety of enzymes in its leaves. This tea takes full advantage of that often untapped resource. By applying heat to these enzymes, a brand new aroma has been unleashed; however, by roasting it in unison with the tea leaves themselves, while this tea bears the unmistakable aroma of fruit, it still preserves its inherent flavors. Brewed hot, it's perfect for drinking on any autumn evening.

"Soothing tea with less bitterness."

This tea is made by fully exploiting the skill of matching tea leaves, called Gogumi. Made by combining the flavor from the tea leaves and the sweetness from the stalks, Shiraore, brewed in hot water to further dilute any bitterness, is a tea with broad appeal perfectly suited for those wishing to enter the world of tea for the first time.
