Our Story

Once upon a time there was a small country in Central-Europe called Hungary, where one day a Japanese man and a Hungarian woman walked next to each other as strangers. They now walk together, as a family, along the way of tea.

Sazen Tea was founded in 2014 by Motonari Jotatsu (historian, Japanese tea instructor, Chinese tea advisor) and his wife, Agnes Balogh (graphic designer, Urasenke tea artist). Its goal is to provide high-quality teas and tea utensils, and to spread the greatness of tea culture.

Our Thoughts

„Through our website we hope to help people realise that tea is a divine gift, a great treasure of nature, that helps us truly live life. I believe that the experience of tea drinking gives comfort, conveys joy and helps live a healthy life both physically and mentally.” (Agnes)

„With the help and support of our partners we strive with utmost dedication and persistence to reach our goal: provide real, genuine, high-quality selected tea worldwide.” (Motonari)
