Eiju is a delightfully well-balanced blend of the widely popular Yabukita and three other tea varietals. Throughout 2-3 infusions flavors gradually arc over buttery umami and vegetal asparagus to fruity apricots and a lingering bouquet, with soft astringency. Eiju, pronounced ‘AY-joo,’ mildly translates from Japanese to "forever happy."
A blend of hand-plucked Yabukita, Okuhikari, Shizuka 7132, and original Japanese varietals grown by Konishi-san, a small tea farmer in Shizuoka, Japan.

Brewing Iced Tea
As with some of our other extremely fine loose-leaf teas, we do not recommend drinking Eiju over ice.
