    • Character

      This tea is produced in 2023, featuring a very floral, fruity, lemony aroma from the dry leaves, and an amazing sweetness and floralness when brewed in hot water. It is one of the few tea that we recommend for making cold brew tea, which mades a naturally sweet and refreshing summer beverage (resembling rose/dry red wine), given the fact that it does not lose its particular fruity and floral aroma even when brew in cold water.

    • Craft
