You'll be amazed by the buttery smooth notes and soft, cloud-like palate of this beautiful tea. Pairs like a charm with any type of sweet or savory dish, its gentle character never overwhelms & is similar to a Pinot Noir therefore can be served in lieu of a fine Pinot with any meal.

When I first cupped this impeccable black tea from Kagoshima, Japan, the only words that left my mouth were, "It's like sipping a cloud." Sweet & free of astringency, this smooth copper-hued, lava-soil grown tea is perfumed only by fresh air boasting slight floral notes laced with perfect mineral balance & a faint hint of chocolate. 

Rare Black Tea from Japan is teeming with natural polyphenols & antioxidants. Black tea promotes heart health by lowering blood pressure and decreasing "bad" cholesterol (LDL.) According to the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 3 cups per day significantly reduces the risk of a stroke. Black tea also supports healthy gut flora, and contains L-Theanine, an amino acid responsible for the balanced delivery of caffeine.

Steep 1 teaspoon in 8oz 212 degree freshly heated filtered or spring water for 3-5 minutes. Strain and sip!

    Naturally Perfectly Sweet

    I'm so impressed by how naturally and delicately sweet this tea is! The blend arrived in time for Easter, so naturally a lot of chocolate and candy was being consumed, which usually makes naturally sweet things taste like nothing in comparison to the artificial sweetness. But this tea is wonderful! Not overwhelming but full bodied, with a bit of honey sweetness.

    Extraordinarily Fine Tea

    Those were my husband's words after he had a cup of Japanese Breakfast - an extraordinarily fine tea. Since he used up his sampler pouch in record time, I just ordered a jar for him. Thrilled that the whole family loves Magic Hour now. Thanks Zhena!

    A complex black tea

    I typically only enjoy black, green, and white teas without any additional flavors. This Japanese breakfast tea isn’t just a one-flavor type of black tea. Yes, it doesn’t have any added flavors, but it smells like more than a “regular” black tea. Unsteeped, you get an almost malty fragrance, and when you steep the leaves, they smell a hint citrusy. Neither of those are overpowering when you drink it though. It’s a wonderful tea, and I’m glad I tried it!

    Buttery honey

    This black tea is like a buttery honey in a cup. It’s smooth black tea with a lovely finish and no bitterness. Love this tea and will be ordering more.

    Great taste!

    It wasn’t too strong like I other breakfast teas I’ve had. Very pleasant taste, perfect for a mild morning tea.
