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.
