Description

KOHANA is a delicious and flavorful blend of organic green tea and organic yuzu citrus peels, straight from the fields of Takahashi san in Oita.
 
Incredibly fragrant and tasty, this original blend of green tea and handpicked yuzu peels is a must throughout the year. Comforting and boosting when brewed in warm water in the winter, it’s also refreshing and uplifting when mixed with ice in the summer. The distinctive scent of yuzu is soothing – it’s a great stress relief and the perfect companion to green tea to relax any time of the day.
 
Originally from Korea, yuzu is a type of citrus grown in Kyushu, especially in Oita. Its strong citrus taste will remind you of grapefruit. Yuzu is rich in antioxidants and has high levels of vitamin C. It’s the fruit of choice in Asia to help at home with sore throats and colds. Adding a dash of honey to your warm cup of KOHANA makes it a real treat!
 
KOHANA is sold in 50g bags and is also available in bulk (5 x 50g with a 15% discount).

Producer

Established in 1963, the Takahashi green tea factory is located in Usuki (Oita pref., Eastern Kyushu) and produces organic green tea since 2001. It was the first green tea farm in Oita to receive the organic JAS certification in 2001.

Takahashi san is now the second generation of his family to lead his business and is specialized in tamaryokucha, a green tea known for its jade color (tama), quite similar to sencha, but whose leaves have a curly shape, and not needle-like. The very last stage of the processing method is different: the tea leaves are put inside drums and dried with hot air.

Takahashi san grows seven different tea cultivars, mainly Yabukita.
