With a medium-bodied wakoucha (Japanese black tea) base, heaps of cardamom, and a sprinkling of rose, this aromatic blend was made to lift the senses. Sourced from Shizuoka, Japan, where the leaves are handpicked by artisan tea farmers, our wakoucha steeps a smooth honey-like flavor that mingles beautifully with spicy and floral elements.
We recommend trying this one as an afternoon tea, with a splash of your choice of milk.

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that offer in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
I am so glad this tea is back! The smoothness of the black tea paired with the warmth of the cardamom, makes this tea a great way to begin my day. I wish Paru carried it year round.
this is in my favorite top three teas i’ve ever purchased from PARU. great balance of cardamom and rose, its a very special drink to share! i hope this becomes a regular offering at PARU :) i really love this combination
This is an earl grey that keeps you coming back for another sip. So surprised by this lovely tea!

I am a spicy chai lover, and the cardamom in this is the perfect flavorful hug I want in the morning.
