People buying a gift of tea for a tea lover often ask me what to put into our Gift Boxes. The box holds four x 50 gram packs of our Charaku Fine Japanese Tea. I usually ask if the recipient is a new tea drinker, or someone with specific tastes.
A variety pack for a beginner could be: 1 Sencha, 1 Genmaicha, 1 Kukicha or Kariganecha, & 1 Gyokuro.
Someone more experienced may like a variety pack based on processing styles: 1 Asamushi (light-steamed) Sencha, such as our Organic Asamushi Sencha from Oita Prefecture; 1 Chuumushi (regular-steamed) Sencha, like our Sencha from Uji (Kyoto) or Chiran (Kagoshima); 1 Fukamushi (deep-steamed) Sencha, like our Chashi Meijin Fukamushicha from Shizuoka; and 1 Tamaryoku Kamairi (pan-fired) Sencha, such as our Organic Tamaryokucha from Miyazaki.
Another way to go is 4 Sencha from different appellations in Japan' for example: Uji, Kagoshima, Oita, Saga Prefectures.
We have about 10 Sencha, all at sale prices, from which to choose at http://www.charaku-tea.com/tea.html.
