88TH NIGHT TEA®
Grand cru de thé vert du Japon
According to the traditional Japanese calendar, the 88TH NIGHT TEA is plucked by hand eighty eight nights after the beginning of spring.
8 is a lucky number in Asia and it takes exactly 88 nights for the buds to bloom completely for the harvest.
The plucking is an occasion for festivities to mark the beginning of the harvest season as well as nature’s awakening after a long winter. The tea gardens exhale a fresh and delicious scent of verdant young leaves.
Delicately crafted right after the harvest, using ancestral methods, this rare and precious green tea retains all the freshness of renewal.
The silky, magnificently umami and ooika liquor carries with it the promise of happy moments to come.
Legends of the Spring.
