Which one should I choose?

This is the most difficult question for us to answer. We have visited and spent time with all of the farmers and know of their love and commitment to their craft, so it is impossible for us to choose a favorite. On the other hand, this is the question we get the most from our customers, so here are some guidelines to help you make your choice.

Yokota Tea Farm (Mr. Yokota)

This tea has a strong aroma, but the taste is gentle, making it an all-around tea for any time of day or mood. We like to drink it first thing in the morning or after dinner.

This tea has undergone kama-iri, which means roasted in a metal drum, so you can enjoy the distinct aroma and clear taste, similar to a Chinese tea.

This tea has a strong flavor, so we recommend drinking it with cooler water when you want to relax.

The taste and aroma will change depending on the water temperature and brewing duration, so please try one tea at a time and find your favorite.
