Answering phone queries about Japanese tea with to-the-point advice

Which brand do you choose as a present?

Uji Shincha 50g Bag

What do you like about it?

With One-Pot Teabag Shincha, I know my friends will be able to easily enjoy the authentic taste of shincha, regardless of whether they have a kyusu.

How do you present it?

The package with its yellow highlights is adorably designed. I give it to friends in an Ippodo bag together with madeleines, which allow the distinctive verdant fragrance and slightly bitter taste of shincha to be fully savoured.

Which brand do you choose as a present?

One-Pot Teabag Shincha

What do you like about it?

I give this to a couple who always help me out. It's also convenient that it comes in a bag, so I can send it to them in the post along with a handwritten letter in the spring, when the cherry blossoms are blooming.

How do you present it?

This couple likes to hold parties at home. Serving a dessert wine plus a satisfyingly sweet cold-brewed Kanro gyokuro after the meal is a simple but delightful idea for when everyone is relaxed.

Happily responding to a variety of requests by phone

Which brand do you choose as a present?

Uji Shincha Medium Can w/box (146g)

What do you like about it?

With its green and white design, the can does a great job of evoking the wonderful feel of early summer.

How do you present it?

I give it to my old college friends who are important to me. We live far away from each other, lead very different lifestyles, and rarely get together, but I make a point of sending them shincha, which is exclusive to spring, as a seasonal gift.
