【limited】Sencha Green tea TOKOSHIE 【2021 kurasu original blend】

TOKOSHIE is Kurasu's original first-flush blend.

"TOKOSHIE" is a Japanese word that means "eternity". We choose that name for special tea in the hopes that the calm that you feel as you enjoy this tea will last. 

サイズ: 50g


The first-flush tea is a finely picked tea, the very first pick of the lush harvest season in spring- nourished by a rich soil surviving the harsh winter, and soft, fresh green sprout of tea leaves has the best and most goodness of the harvest.

We selected our single origin Okuyutaka and Okumidori to bring the umami of Okuyutaka and the refreshing aroma of Okumidori in a cup, bursting with flavor - makes this tea fit for special occasions.
