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.
Ingredients: black tea, green cardamom, rose petals

I absolutely adore this tea! The cardamom comes through beautifully, and is well balanced by the rose and the black tea base. The tea is excellent simply brewed on its own, or with sugar and/or milk added. I bought the smaller version to try, and then had to come back for the larger version after I went through the whole bag in less than a week. This tea is so special, and I can’t but wish it weren’t a limited edition!
This tea is delicious!! I love the fact the cardamom comes through so strongly, and the rose so subtly, but both beautifully. This tea is perfect on its own, but you can most certainly sweeten it, and it’s just as good. Makes a lovely milk tea. I can’t wait to cold brew this to see what it’s like. I bought the small package and came back for the larger pack after my first brewed cup. I’m quite sad this is a limited edition, I’d put this in subscription!
