kigyo6-1Maruyama Tea Products Corporation Prize / 丸山製茶賞

Japanese Souvenirs Omotenashi Series /

These tea packages have Japanese-style designs. Each contains 100 grams of “Sencha” and “Genmaicha Mixed with Matcha” – both from the Japanese Souvenirs Omotenashi series. A packet containing 50 grams of hojicha costs 500 yen. A packet of 80 grams of “Kinsaika” (lightly steamed) sencha containing pure gold flakes costs 1,000 yen. These are all Japanese teas, but they taste different because of the varying ways they’re made.
