AKANE / Dark Roast Houjicha Powder – 80g

RM69.00


Artisanal Dark Roasted Green Tea Powder

AKANE embodies the alluring complexities of intense roasted-smokiness due to the high-roasting profile it entails.

Crafted from Yabukita cultivar and grown in humble meadows of Kagoshima and Miyazaki prefectures in Kyushu Island, this dark brown roasted green tea offers a divinely smooth mouthfeel when sipped. This transcends into a distinct smokey flavour, culminating in underlying notes of dark chocolate and cacao.
