Chanoka Kukicha 100g
This tea begins with a light hay note that later transforms into a flood of these more flowery flavor profiles. The lilac you notice from the smell of the wet leaves, transforms beautifully into the taste. The finish is starchy with notes of cereal and sweet corn.
The second infusion plays more on these citrusy and floral notes. The tea becomes drier, with less of these sweet and starchy flavors. The minerality of the tea becomes more perceptable and it retains its long finish.
Chanoka Sencha 100g
This tea begins with a warm, sweet corn note, followed by some slightly drier notes of cereal. The tea finishes with a mouthwatering sweetness, with delicate hints of steamed vegetables and a slight cooling sensation.
The seconds steeping goes much deeper into these steamed vegetable notes, pairing them beautifully with this citrusy fruitiness. The finish is long, with a light hint of astringency.
Chanoka Mountain Sencha 100g
This tea eases in slowly to these warm cereal notes and later gets rounded out by these more savory vegetable notes. The tea coats the palate with a heavy and warm sweetness that lingers on the palate.
The seconds steeping begins to mellow out slightly, and pick up some of these straw notes. Although it is a bit drier, it is still rounded out by a nice sweet finish.
Red Kyusu Teapot
If you want to brew Japanese green tea in the traditional way, you must use a Kyusu teapot. This red tokoname kyusu is a great way to start exploring the world of Japanese green tea. It is a glazed teapot so it doesn't disrupt the flavor too much and it has an easy to clean metal sifter around the edges so that the tea leaves don't end up inside your glass. The reason we recommend using the kyusu is that it provides the maximum amount of space for the leaves to open up and fully release their flavor.
