Lovely tea and a wonderful company. Always happy to support local. :-)
Speedy shipping and delightful tea :)
Roasted green tea earthiness! This Houjicha is the best I have ever tasted. The flavor is complex; earthy, a subtle smokiness, and the scent is delightful. When I drink this at work, my co-workers stop in their tracks, and come over to ask me what i am drinking!
A great place to learn about tea whille enjoying a cup or two!
