2018 Loose Leaf Tea Collections

from 45.00

We are proud to introduce our 2018 Tea Collections. Teas featured in each set were personally sourced by Kettl and are part of our exclusive catalog of products. Each and every product featured stands as a best in class with low production amounts and often coming from award winning producers. Tea of this caliber rarely, if ever makes it out of Japan. Until Now.  Each set is hand wrapped in a Japanese timber box.

Set 1 Includes

Rare Collection

1 x Shizuku Gyokuro, 50g

This hon, or true gyokuro, is shaded for 20 days before being hand harvested. Elevated levels of the amino acid theanine impart a deep and pervasive savoriness that is balanced by a gentle floral finish.

1 x Asa no Yume Tamaryokucha, 50g

We are proud to offer you the exclusive house tea for NYC's Sushi Nakazawa. Grown by our good friend Masatoshi Matsuo san, this tea was the 2014 grand prize winner of the 2014 Tokyo Tea Party Nihoncha Awards. This Asatsuyu varietal Tamaryokucha is a curled leaf, steamed green tea hailing from Nagasaki Prefecture. Expect beautiful aromatics, refreshing and focused flavor on the palate, and a lasting buttery sweetness.
