Marufuku Seicha Co,. Ltd.

Marufuku Seicha purchases teas from Shizuoka and throughout Japan, and engages in tea production, processing, and distribution. Fascinated particularly by the flavor of tea leaves from the mountainous area upstream of the Abe River in Shizuoka City, it established proprietary roasting techniques to draw out the character of the tea leaves.
While adhering to the basics of traditional tea production, the company also handles new products such as tea potage and tea for sprinkling on yogurt.
