Nakayama san in Higashi-Sonogi has created a bright and balanced tamaryokucha with the youngest leaves picked in early spring. ISAO is a highly aromatic and elegant tea that beautifully represents Higashi-Sonogi.
Its delicate and aromatic liquor has notes of kumquat, toasted pine nut, and steamed arugula. It can be enjoyed over many steeps as its subtle, fragrant characteristics will continue to develop.
