WINTER IN JAPAN
The Japanese traditional citrus, ‘Yuzu’ is usually only available in winter. Our master tea artisans blended it with mild tasting Kukicha green tea. The fresh and fruity fragrance of Yuzu compliments the bright taste of the tea. The result is a zesty, refreshing and cleansing drink. Unlike other Japanese green teas, Kukicha is derived from the stems, stalks and twigs of the tea plant. We decided to play it up one notch, by bringing together two of the Japanese biggest favourites - Yuzu and Kukicha. If you’re a fan of something sweet, floral, nutty and unusual, it is perfect on a cold winter’s day.

Japan, Shizuoka Shimizu
Known to be the largest tea producing region of Japan, Shizuoka is also one of the country’s most beautiful tea-growing areas, framed by the towering peak of Mt Fuji. The region is climatically perfect for tea cultivation, with fresh water, sun, heavy mists and nutrient-rich volcanic soil. It’s also home to Shimizu, one of the oldest plantations in the prefecture, famous for its ancient traditions and top-class tea. The tea produced here is known as ‘brown rice tea’ – it’s actually a combination Japanese Green Tea and roasted rice, which lends the tea its unique flavour.
