Our Story

We welcome you to Plum Island Imports!

We're thrilled to have you join us on a wonderful adventure, one that celebrates the intricate threads of Japanese culture and time-honored traditions. At the heart of Plum Island Imports, our purpose is to share with you a carefully curated collection of organic tea and treasures that embody the very essence and beauty of Japan's rich heritage.

We have partnered with tea farmers from a small, family tea field nestled in the charming village of Wazuka, Japan. These dedicated tea farmers grow premium, organic tea and are committed to sustainable farming. With an aging population and successors not always interested in tea farming, interest in tea has declined. We would like to ensure that future generations have an appreciation of tea and tradition.

Step into a world where ancient traditions seamlessly blend with modern innovation. Our shelves are filled with carefully handpicked items that reflect the craftsmanship, artistry, and spirit of Japan. From exquisite tea sets that embody the serene art of tea ceremony to intricately designed kimono fabrics that encapsulate centuries of elegance, we invite you to explore the wonders that Japan has to offer.

But it's more than just products; it's an appreciation for values like respect, mindfulness, and harmony, rooted deeply in Japanese culture. Every time you make a purchase, you're not just acquiring an item—it's like you're becoming a part of Japan's captivating story, a narrative that has shaped its identity over time.

We believe that connecting with Japanese culture is an enriching experience that goes beyond mere consumption. It's about embracing the ethos of a nation known for its grace, discipline, and innovation. Through our collection, we hope to foster an appreciation for the intricate beauty and philosophy that have shaped Japan and continue to influence the world. Whether you're seeking to embrace the serene simplicity of Zen aesthetics, adorn your surroundings with intricate artistry, or savor the flavors of authentic Japanese cuisine, Plum Island Imports is your gateway to a world of possibilities.

Thank you for choosing to take this enchanting journey with us. Our promise to you is exceptional products, unwaveringly impeccable service, and an unbreakable connection to the heart and soul of Japan. So, go ahead and explore, let your curiosity roam, and embrace the treasures that await your discovery.
