Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring green tea entrepreneurs Masao Oyaizu and Yuki Mori.
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Masao Oyaizu and Yuki Mori are on a mission to preserve and share a cherished part of Japanese culture—the tradition of green tea. The history of this venerated beverage dates back to 13th-century Japan. Blending heritage with modern innovation, Masao and Yuki brewed up an international company, ensuring the sun will always rise on Japan’s beloved green tea.
Masao Oyaizu was born in the shadow of Mount Fuji in Shizuoka City—an area known for producing the highest quality green tea leaves in Japan. Raised in the family business, Masao learned to grow green tea leaves the old-fashioned way. As the tradition of the tea ceremony was replaced by the convenience of bottled green tea, Masao blended his talents with Yuki Mori. Together, they infused an ancient tradition with modern flair. Out of this unique pairing grew their 17-layer green tea cake and signature gold leaf green tea gelato, popular with tourists and a social media sensation. Today their company, Oyaizu Seicha International Japanese Tea, is recognized world over as a purveyor of green tea and mouthwatering green tea deserts—with distribution across England, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and the United States. And so the sun rises on Masao and Yuki, who have preserved a bit of old Japan by building a modern empire.
