Yunomi is a brand with a mission: Bridge borders! We make it easy to cross cultural and linguistic oceans—particularly the oceans of complexity surrounding the international shipment of food.
Commerce as Communication
Our belief in the concept "Commerce as Communication" means we also seek to create lasting relationships between producers and consumers—more than “farm to table”, we promote “people to people”. On Yunomi, you can read about the farmers who grow your tea, and we translate your product reviews and questions into Japanese so the farmers can also learn about you!
