    About the product


    KATATOKI is Kurasu's original first-flush blend.

    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 Yabukita / Okuyutaka / Okumidori to get the best of each world and blended them to perfect balance- it has the rich umami of Okuyutaka, the flamboyant aroma of Okumidori, and the classy astringency of Yabukita.






    "Katatoki" is a Japanese word to describe a short, brief moment in time- while the tea break and a quick sip of a tea may be brief, we want to deliver something special and enjoyable to that moment.

    This year, due to the effects of the corona virus, opportunities to go out are often limited.

    We hope that this tea will give you a calming moment to reflect and take care of yourself, and also to take time to think about others who are dear to your heart.
