Japanese Breakfast- Tea of the Rising Sun



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. 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.
