Very soon we here at Matcha Yu Tea will be saying Sayonara (goodbye) to Australia and a big Konnichiwa (hello) to Japan!

We're visiting Japan specifically to visit our Premium Matcha tea supplier as it's tea picking season but also to enjoy drinking a lot of Matcha and enjoying many tea inspired desserts!

Whenever we travel outside of the home, we make every effort to bring our own reusable items so as to avoid excessive plastic consumption.

So, what exactly DO you put in a zero waste travel kit for Japan?
