The time was end of ancient Edo period, and in 1860, the brand Tsujiri was first established by Riemon Tsuji in Uji in Kyoto, Japan. The founder Riemon tapped his own wealth to improve the then tea industry, advancing and innovating the method to enhance the flavours and sweetness of the tea –to accomplish in making the highest quality Gyokuro tea leaves. He also devised the tea cabinet to keep the tea leaves fresh longer, thereby enabled to revive the popularity and marketing of the Uji tea. His effort was well recognised by many and to attest to that, his statute was built in Byodoin, the Kyoto's world heritage shrine.
Since then and for more than 150 years, the brand TSUJIRI has kept Riuemon's spirits of "innovation atop keeping tradition",
and continued to offer the best Uji tea throughout Japan from its founding family
base in Uji in Kyoto as well as its major satellite locations in Kitakyusyu Kokura,
Gion in Kyoto and Okayama.
