A single cultivar (benifuuki) black tea with light, sweet, floral notes of citrus and a hint of cinnamon. Enjoy straight, or steep stronger for making milk tea.

Winner of the 2022 Nihoncha Awards Platinum Medal! This award is held by the Nihoncha ("Japanese tea") Instructor's Association. Unlike regional and national tea competitions held throughout Japan featuring the unrefined tea leaves that come from farmers, the Nihoncha Awards accepts entries from farms, factories and sellers that are commercial products, refined teas meant for drinking by consumers. Awards are given out in August judged by a select panel of experts while they over winners in several categories are chosen after tea tastings are held for the general public (several hundred tasters) in December—a people’s choice type of award.
