Description

A unique and award-winning Japanese black tea (wa-koucha) with added handpicked cherry tree petals, which give a fragrant cherry aroma to the tea. Its orange-hued liquor has notes of clover honey, black cherry, and barley syrup.

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.
