Tea Business Consultations are organized by Obubu team, who has been working in all aspects of tea from production to business development for more than a decade and we are eager to share our knowledge and experience to help you grow.



A few examples of previous Tea Business Consultations:

A tea startup in the Netherlands wanted to learn about the difference between Japanese and Chinese green teas, and when choosing to work with Japanese tea how to communicate its value to their customers.

A tea business in Italy wanted to gain a better understanding of different types of Japanese tea, when and how they are made to have a more convincing and confident engagement with their customers.

A tea farm in New Zealand was seeking to learn about organic tea farming in Japan: organic fertilizers, weeding, frost prevention systems, etc., to make improvements in their own farm.

What our Tea Business Consultation attendees have to say?

“I have a website, www.green-tea-guide.com, providing information about green tea, and I sometimes get asked difficult questions. I joined this professional session to learn more about the differences between organic and conventional farming. The session was very informative and interesting. Matsu is well informed about all aspects of green tea. He was able to explain difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. Everything was perfect. I really enjoyed the discussion. It was a pleasure to meet Matsu and Simona. Thank you so much!” – August, 2014

“I joined a professional tea session to learn more about Japanese teas. I liked the session it was very informal and professional. I tried a lot of different teas and enjoyed them all. I could ask questions and could understand very clearly all the different nuances of Japanese teas and what makes them so different. It was a very good experience. Both Matsu and Simona were very friendly and helpful.” – May, 2014

“I wanted to know more about tea tastings and other things in general for my online store. I thought there would be language problems, but it was very smooth. I was surprised by Matsumoto’s san English, he is very good. The last email that I received with more resources was also very helpful. I liked it very much, Matsumoto san and Simona san are very friendly and all my questions were answered in a sincere way. (See full review by Ricardo here)” – May, 2014
