A taster set of three of Morihata’s favourite teas to test your palate with. This beautiful little box contains three organic green teas: Genmaicha with brown rice (50g), roasted Hojicha (30g), and Kanaya Midori (50g). All of these teas have been harvested by hand and so are free from pesticides, ensuring that a clean, refreshing cup awaits.
A slightly savory green tea blended with roasted rice that is perfect for daily drinking and pairs wonderfully with food.
A popular choice for nearly every situation and is our recommendation for those who are new to the world of Japanese green teas. The addition of roasted rice (genmai) introduces a savory element and baked grain aroma that balances the subtle bitterness of sencha. Genmaicha is one of our favorite teas to drink cold.
What to expect from Genmaicha: A well-rounded and balanced cup with aromas of puffed rice and notes of hazelnut and cereal.
A slowly roasted green tea that has minimal caffeine and an earthy and sweet taste that’s perfect for any time of day.
Despite its auburn complexion, Hojicha is indeed a member of the green tea family. Its unique hue is achieved by slowly and expertly dry roasting fresh tea leaves. This process coaxes out new flavors and aromas like vanilla and barley and has the added benefit of greatly decreasing caffeine levels.
What to expect from Hojicha: A dry, hazel-colored tea that yields a dark amber cup with nutty aromas and a slightly sweet taste with nearly no bitterness or caffeine.
A green tea cultivar known for its delicate aroma and creamy texture paired with the bright and vegetal qualities of a high-quality sencha.
Kanaya midori is a premium sencha that showcases the kanaya midori cultivar (there are over 100 Japanese tea varieties) and the unique growing conditions of Kirishima, Japan. Kirishima’s constant sea breeze and volcanic soil lend this tea a bright and refreshing flavor that pairs well with the trademark creamy texture of kanaya midori.
What to expect from Kanaya midori: Dark green and glossy tea leaves that, when brewed, make for a refreshing cup with notes of lemon basil and kombu and a smooth finish.
