First-picked tea with a green floral scent and sweetness like nectar.
Spring-picked Darjeeling from a tea plantation whose name means 'moon bear's cave' in the Lepcha language. The yellow tea leaves contain many core buds wrapped in silver downy hair, suggesting careful picking. The water color poured into the cup is pale yellow. It has a green floral scent and a taste as pure as spring water in the forest and as light and sweet as nectar. A special brand that was carefully harvested to celebrate the arrival of spring.

In the hot water, fresh tea leaves return to their original appearance.
In 2022, we purchased spring-picked specialty teas from the Sumabion tea garden. The clonal variety used for this year's brand is P-312 against last year's AV-2. Extracted from yellow tea leaves containing large and powerful core buds (silver chips), the tea juice has a slightly thick taste. The fresh green of spring and the sweetness of flower nectar are combined to make you feel like you're in the back of your throat. The sweet scent is impressive, and it tastes as if it embodies the "Spring Blossom" in the grade notation. We are sure that you will be able to spend a relaxing and special tea time, including the beautiful tea leaves that you can see that they have been carefully picked and processed in the hot water.

A fragrance nurtured by the Himalayas, Darjeeling
Darjeeling tea is known as one of the world's three major black teas, and is called "the champagne of black tea" due to its delicate and strong aroma. Even if you don't like black tea, it's a famous production area. Darjeeling has three distinct quality seasons: spring, summer and autumn. Harvested in late March and early April, the First Flush is the tea leaves picked during the first harvest season of the year that tea fans around the world await. The bright yellow light blue gives off a greenish scent reminiscent of the green of the grasslands filled with the breath of spring. It's a particularly popular season for people in France, Germany, and Japan.
