At Home Tea Flights - May 2021 - Exploring Japanese Teas
Celebrate the first tea harvest of the season in Japan by enjoying these three teas that reflect this beautiful country. This flight set includes sample sizes of:
Kukicha: Formed from stalks and twigs taken from sencha, bancha, or gyokuro harvests, Kukicha is known for its rich aromas and soft, creamy mouthfeel, with a subtle sesame flavor.
Sencha Organic: Japan’s most popular green tea by far! Our organic Asamushi sencha comes from Shizuoka Prefecture, and boasts rich, full-bodied, vegetal flavors with a subtle oceanic finish.
Hojicha Organic: This unique Japanese tea starts with a base sencha, which is roasted until browned. The resulting flavors are warm and nutty, with a lingering toffee and caramel finish and very little caffeine.
Our at home tea flight is a way for you to sample new teas and practice identifying flavors and mouth-feels. We have included a tasting card with a flavor pinwheel for you to use in your sampling to improve and practice your capability to identify flavors.
