A delicious green tea for your daily cup, the first steeping of Kurihara-san's Hime Kaori offers a smooth balance between sweet and astringent flavors with a hint of roast, perfect for a nice moment of relaxation.

First steeping: 5 grams of tea, 1 minute, 70C/158F degrees, 200 ml water 

Primed for flavor extraction, second steeping will come out strong, so pour your hot water into the pot, and immediately out into your cup. The astringency will be noticeable for a strong, full-bodied tea with a hint of sweet but tangy citrus.

Second steeping: 10-20 seconds, 90C/194F degrees, 200 ml water 

Grown by the Kurihara brothers in the back hills of Yame, in a small village of a 1000 people called Yabemura.
