    Fukushima Aizuwakamatsu-shi Omachi 1-1-55
    "This long-established tea shop was established during the Tenpo period (1831-1845). Along Noguchi Hideyo Seishun Street in Aizu Wakamatsu, the town where Dr. Hideyo Noguchi is said to have spent his adolescence, tea is sold with the heart of Aizu in mind. The original green tea ""Soemon"" is a gem of a product originating from the succession of the name Kishuya Soemon, which Kishuen has inherited for generations. It is made with a mild and calm taste, inspired by the history, climate, natural features and temperament of Aizu. The tea is a unique blend of gyokuro (shaded green tea), mecha (coarse broken tea leaves) and kukicha (twig tea), which is delicious no matter who brews it and how hot the water is. Their ""Aizu ginger bancha"" with ginger and black beans and refreshingly bitter sencha green tea is also popular."

    創業は300年以上前という老舗です。木材商なども営んでいたようですが、明治末期から昭和初期にかけてたばこや茶葉を販売していたそうです。これが現在の紀州園茶舗につながっているようです。人情味があって律儀な会津の心を詰まっているというオリジナルブレンド「緑茶そうえもん」がお勧めです。
