1. Sawatari Tea
Deep in a valley carved by the Niyodo River in Kochi Prefecture lies a pastoral tea plantation where a third-generation owner works hard to preserve his grandfather’s legacy. In fact, he has continued to innovate by expanding the brand beyond just tea and also offers desserts and jams made with Sawatari tea.
2. Guava Tea
Because it contains zero caffeine, this tea is popular among health-conscious individuals and pregnant women. Even young children are encouraged to drink this tasty, nutritious beverage. It helps to suppress blood sugar from spiking and lower blood pressure. It’s also antibacterial and is packed with antioxidants. Guava tea can also be used as an accompaniment when cooking, such as stock for miso soup or simmered dishes, to enhance the flavours of your ingredients.
3. Hojicha Tea/Tosa Aburi Tea
What makes this Hojicha tea unique is that it’s 100% made with Kochi tea leaves that have gone through rigorous testing to be certified “Tosa roasted tea”. Tosa tea has a warm amber colour and a beautiful aroma that is perfect for sipping on during those long, rainy afternoons.
4. Snack and Dessert
Why not throw in a packet of tako senbei as well as matcha milk zenzai in this gift set? The former is a savoury snack made with battered octopi and is a Kanagawa speciality while the latter is a type of Japanese sweets that combines matcha, milk and white bean paste.
