Premium Blended Koucha
As soon as you open the bag, the delicious sweet scent of sakura petals greets you. This tea can be enjoyed by itself as a light breakfast tea or a lively afternoon tea. It is a tea that you will want to sip over and over again.
Harashima san’s koucha is made from tea leaves grown in the Yame mountains at 500 meters above sea level. A fermented tea, this koucha has a firm taste and sweetness similar to that of Assam tea - used for non-Japanese black tea - and also a characteristically Darjeeling flavor. A perfect match for sweets.

What Customers say
Perfect for a moment of contemplation in the afternoon.
I rarely like scented tea but this one sure won me over. A very savoury tea with mild but pronounced scent of sakura that compliments the tea perfectly. Sweet lingering after taste in the throat too
I bought it for my dear friend whose name is Chikako! She told me the aroma of this tea was out of the world! Got to try it myself next time!
Amazing taste! If you a black tea lover, you definitely wanna try this one for improved the experience of Asian style royal feeling.
Black tea, the Japanese way! Subtle cherry flavor. Very soothing. Worth the price if you like flavored black tea. I drink it with a gulp of oat milk and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Tastes great with 70% dark chocolate.
