Shota and Celia, the visionary founders of Senbird Tea, nurture a profound love for tea, a legacy inherited from their tea-loving family. They've always found solace and tranquility in the daily ritual of sipping tea together, which has become an integral part of their wellness-focused lifestyle.

Frequent visits to Japan, where they uncovered the exceptional quality and diversity of teas, opened their eyes to the disparity in tea offerings back home in the United States. This prompted them on a transformative journey to connect directly with Japan's passionate tea farmers. While immersing themselves in the art and traditions of tea-making, they forged enduring bonds with these dedicated farmers.


Inspired by the deep wisdom and unwavering dedication of these farmers, Shota and Celia are determined to share the goodness of Japanese tea with the world. From this steadfast commitment and profound respect for tea-making traditions, Senbird was born, driven by the vision of sharing Japan's finest teas and inspiring daily moments of appreciation.

"The ‘art of tea’ is a spiritual force for us to share."

More about the JAS Mark.


Japan's tea culture is in crisis, with a 70% decline in local tea harvesters since the 1990s, driven by mass-produced, low-quality teas and the popularity of bottled teas. This trend has forced many small and artisanal tea farmers into retirement, risking the loss of Japan's rich tea traditions and unique flavors. Recognizing this, Senbird is dedicated to supporting these family-owned farms and heritage practices, helping to sustain and celebrate the authentic essence of Japanese tea culture.
