Lupicia started out in Japan in 1994 and actually began as two separate tea stores. First as a black tea specialty store called "L'epicier", meaning grocery store in French. Then a few years later a specialty tea store offering green teas from China and Japan called "緑碧茶園 Lu Pi Cha En", meaning jade green tea garden in Chinese, was opened.

In 2005 the company decided to become a purveyor of world teas and combined the two stores and the two names resulting in the name "LUPICIA". In a sense, it is a blending of cultures that envisions the hope to spread the wonderful flavors of tea and a tea drinking culture throughout the world.
