Gotta Get – Green Tea at Tsukiji Market Jugetsudo

Image

Tsukiji Market is the most popular destination for our Food Sake Tokyo tours. Perhaps the most popular item that clients buy to bring home with them is Japanese green tea. My favorite tea shop in the market is Jugetsudo which is at the Maruyama Noriten Shop. The shop sells a variety of tea including mattcha, genmaicha, hōjicha, and seasonal teas like a sakura tea that has cherry blossoms mixed with the green tea.

What I recommend for busy people who are not in the practice of steeping loose tea are these convenient tea packs. The tea can be served hot or cold. The cold tea is cold brewed simply by putting one bag with a liter of cold water in the refrigerator. A small package of 15 tea bags retails for 400 JPY. This larger package of 70 tea bags retails for 1,570 JPY.

Here is the cold brew green tea. It is refreshing and nourishes me through the summer.

If brewing hot tea, then only 15 seconds in 100 degrees Centigrade water.

Maruyama Noriten and Jugetsudo have three shops at Tsukiji Market. The photo above is in the outer market:

Tsukiji 4-14-17

The Main Shop, which has recently been renovated is at Tsukiji 4-7-5.

The inner market, jōnai, shop is at Tsukiji 5-2-1.

  1. We were in this shop in October and I purchased the green tea photographed above and am in love. Is there any way to purchase their products online?

    • I don’t think that they shop overseas. Where do you live? I might be able to send it to you, but would charge for my time. Can you e-mail me? Our e-mail address is under “about” on this blog.

      • Dear Yukari,
        I really like this tea so much as it can’t compare to another and it is so true that this product only available at Tsukiji. Could you please help us send it oversea. I would like to accept your charge for your time. Please kindly reply as I really can’t find “about” on this blog.
        With Thanks,

      • Hi Yukari!
        I love this tea and it was unfortunate that I only bought one bag to bring back home. I can’t find your email address anywhere. Is it possible for you to send it to Australia? Waiting for your reply 🙂

  2. We bought a package of the same tea. It is almost gone now. I will be more than happy to pay for your time if you can send me the tea. I try to look it up online, they have the website but not the product.

  3. I would be really great if you can send the tea. My husband and I went to Tokyo and got only one package. Of course, if you have the time. We also are more than happy to pay for your time. Thank you.
