Description

Kyoto is the cultural centre of Japan. Several centuries ago Kyoto was the religious capital of Japan. The relics of this past are evident throughout the city. Besides the multitude of temples that dot the city and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii – those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan.

The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well being).

During the springtime, this area of Japan is ablaze with the new season cherry blossoms and the air is filled with a sweet aroma. (The rose petals in this blend are intended to simulate these delicate cherry blossoms and the flavour is reminiscent of the beautiful smells that waft on the springtime breezes.)

It is little wonder that this ancient city has a very high ratio of tearooms and this tea was created to honour (very important in Japan) this wonderful time of the year.

Directions:

Hot tea brewing method: Heat water to 180°F or 80°C. Place 1 teaspoon of green tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot.

Pour the water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 minutes.

Pour into your cup and enjoy. Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.

When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly – about 3 times. Iced tea brewing method: Make as for hot, but add extra tea – when the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice.
