SENCHA BLEND

Nº0 Kochi | Shincha

¥2,600

Kochi, named after the refreshing eastern spring winds, is the first flush green tea of Mohei, cultivated in the fertile volcanic soil of Mt. Fuji. This special tea is a blend of four varieties of Sencha: Sōfu, Tsuyu Hikari, Yabukita, and Sayamakaori, to celebrate the theme of greenness. 

Nourished by the rich minerals and the gentle breezes of spring, it captures the spirit of renewal and purity that the season brings.

Tea Pairing

Best moment of the day: Breakfast - Lunch - Afternoon 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.

Asian Pairing

Any types of dumpling will do; this blend will add an amazing twist
