Product features

Product features (information about taste and nutrients, special production/manufacturing methods/specialties of the production location)
We use only Aso home-grown green tea leaves. Flavor changes depending on field where tea is grown, so it has a natural soft aroma from the foothills of Aso and a deep flavor from direct heat roasting. It comes in a 2 gram package, so you can enjoy it for one cup.
Tea is shaded for 14 days before picking to make it sweet. It is picked during the "Isshin Niyo" season, which makes it one of the most valuable teas of the year. The tea leaves are picked before the peak season of first tea leaves, so they have the aroma of new leaves.

Instructions/advice on how to use and to eat.

Size of the pack is also specially designed for use in mugs, so that you can enjoy individual flavors as you like.
You can enjoy the balance of sweetness, astringency, and aroma by leaching it in hot water at a temperature of 60-70 degrees Celsius for about 2 to 3 minutes, or leave it in water for about 30 minutes or more and then leach it.
It can also be used in sweetened beverages.
