Yamamotoyama is a brand of tea owned by the Yamamoto of Orient / Yamamotoyama of America company. The company was established in 1690 and started doing business in the U.S. in 1975. In 1993, Yamamotoyama acquired Stash Tea in what the Portland Business Journal described as a "bitter takeover battle".[1]

Yamamotoyama almost exclusively sells Japanese green teas, except for a few other teas. Its teas are widely available in Asian specialty stores, and a few of its products are sometimes found in supermarkets. Most of its widely available products are in teabags, although it also does sell loose tea.

Some of the teabags used in Yamamotoyama's products are 100% biodegradable, made of PLA from corn. Yamamotoyama has recently started selling a number of organic teas as well. Although it is better known for selling teabags, Yamamotoyama also sells loose teas.

Yamamotoyama also sells sushi supplies.
