Enjoy the delicious taste of tea in spring!

April is when cherry blossoms bloom, and in Japan, it is also an exciting month of new beginnings, when children change schools and graduates start their first job. It can be a time of exhilaration, anticipation, and surprises. Below, we feature teas that are just the thing for helping you relax and enjoy springtime.

 


Gyokuro Mantoku

Gyokuro Mantoku
100g Bag ¥1,700

The act of preparing Japanese tea can be soothing in itself. Pour on hot water, place the lid on the kyusu, and wait about 30 seconds from the time you added the hot water. Then pour out all of the tea into the teacups. Taking the time to be patient like this can be relaxing. So, pause, relax, and then enjoy the smooth taste and fresh fragrance of our Mantoku gyokuro.
