"Grandpa" (Oji-chan, in Japanese) is an herbal tea with 8 different types of high quality herbs that have been utilised traditionally. When steeped, this aromatic tea will be brown in color and provide earthy, toasty sensations with a spicy aroma. The guava and loquat leaves provide delicate citrusy elements while the reishi provide a savouriness to this tea. The ingredients of the "Grandpa" resemble that one may bring back from the woods - large dried leaves, twigs, and shiny seeds (please see photo). However, once brewed, you may be pleasantly surprised by this unique Japanese herbal tea.
Along with their unique "Grandma" tea, Nakazen has made this tea with the wish for everyone's healthy life. While this herbal blend is referred to as "Grandpa", this tea is not only for grandfathers but can be enjoyed by everyone in the family! Delicious both hot or cold. Note that in comparison to the "grandma" blend, this blend uses turmeric instead of safflower.
