Directly produced at the foot of Mt Fuji, cultivated in its rich soil and nourished by its volcanic nutrients. Hoshitsukiyo (Starry Night) has a sweet taste, umami, and astringency with a slight milky aroma. It leaves a pleasant but strong aftertaste that persists in the palate. It will reset your mind and help you focus afterward.

Tea Pairing

Best moment of the day: For Breaks

Japanese tea is traditionally offered with Japanese sweets. They also pair very well with all sorts of meals, either for breakfast, lunch, breaks, or even dinner (for the lower-caffeine tea).

During his years of serving tea to his dear customers, Mohei's knowledge of the flavors and characteristics of his teas allows him to share the wonders of an exceptional green tea served with the right food. When paired well, Japanese tea can unlock further benefits such as better digestion, better diet, or enhanced sensation of satiety.

Dry Fruits

Hoshitsukiyo is best appreciated with light and fruity snacks
