Elegant roasted aroma and finish, this tea comes from a little mountain adjacent to the Kumano Kodo.

Following Iorek Byrnison’s recommendation, I am steeped this tea for two minutes with boiling water, and it definitely is a lot better. The flavors are the same, just increased. No bitterness, which I worry about with green tea at higher temperatures. Wonderful all around. :)

No no, one minute. Really, it works. It sounds crazy short, but it works. Promise. Same goes for their much less roasted Tenryo Bocha, which is AMAZING btw and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Past 60 seconds, you begin losing nuance and warmth, in my experience. One minute is the sweet spot for a tea so calming it rivals chamomile’s chemically induced calm.


Yep, I got that wrong lol next time! :)
