AKANE / Dark Roast Houjicha Powder
RM69.00 – RM189.00
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.
