B&A Japanese Premium Tea Set (2 items)

€44,00 EUR

This gift set includes:

- Yamashina Torori Sencha, 100g x 1
- Yamashina Genmaicha Mix with Matcha, 100g x 1
- Bows & Arrows Gift Bag Packing

This original tea set contains 2 types of our most popular and easy to prepare Japanese teas in the collection. 

Sencha is a type of Japanese ryokucha (green tea) which is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water. Unlike macha, comes in the form of powder, which is more ceremonial, sencha is known as the most popular tea in Japan. Sencha is perfect for drinking at anytime in the day, and can be prepared more quickly. In Japan, we drink it both hot and cold.

How to prepare sencha:
Water temperature: 80°C - Infusion: 40 seconds. 4 g (for 1 person) for 25 cl of water.

Genmaicha is a type of brown rice tea, a mixture of tea stems and leaves with roasted puffed brown rice. The sugar and starch from the rice give this tea a warm, full, and nutty flavor. It is considered easy to drink, and to calm the stomach. The flavor is mild and it combines also the fresh grassy taste of green tea with the unique aroma of the roasted rice.

How to prepare genmaicha:
Although this tea is based on green tea, the recommended way to brew this tea is different: the water should be at about 80–85 °C (176–185 °F), and a brewing time of 3–5 minutes is recommended, depending on the desired strength of the taste.

Ingredients: green tea, genmai
Store in a cool, dry place, away from light.
Place of origin: Asakura, Japan

Due to US custom restrictions on food items, this product is currently unavailable for clients living in United States.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design.

We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to modern demands. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.
