Made with three standout ingredients—wakoucha (aged Japanese red tea), Formosa oolong, and Okinawan black sugar crystals—this blend offers a satisfyingly sweet, biscuit-like flavor. We’ve chosen to use this artisan sugar for its malty character and mineral-rich benefits. Enjoy as is or with 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’m really enjoying this tea. I wanted something that had enough caffeine to wake me up and it definitely does the job, along with a really nice lightly sweet flavor. I love this in the morning or in the afternoon when I need a pick me up. I bought this along with a few other teas during a sale and I would definitely repurchase this tea again!
I loved this mix. The subtle sweetness is perfect and the flavor of the tea is so yummy. I’ve enjoyed having it in the morning with a splash of milk.
This blend is lovely, smooth with a hint of smokiness.
I have always enjoyed the sweet kick that this tea has consistently provided. The Okinawan sugar is medium sweet and love the subtle aroma it provides.
Okinawa sugar is my morning go to when I wake up. I put the kettle on and start preparing the meals for my teenager to take to school for the day. It’s the morning pick me up I need before dropping my kid to school, workout and my work day.
