Hand-cut, dark roasted green tea. The tea is harvested during autumn and winter. The teaplant has been left to grow freely for 3 years (sannen). After the harvest the leaves ripen for about 3 years. This macrobiotic, traditional Japanese tea has a lovely smooth, sweet-roast, soothing taste, is low in caffeine, easy on the stomach, brings a sense of well-being and welcomed warmth brewed hot during the winter. In summer great as iced-tea.
