【limited】Sencha green tea KATATOKI【2021 kurasu original blend】

KATATOKI is Kurasu's original first-flush blend.

"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.

The first-flush is 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 acidity of Yabukita.
