Packed in a particularly high-quality, airtight aroma protection bag with zipper and stand-up bottom. Extremely high barrier security is achieved by a 9-fold coating for maximum protection against harmful substances. In addition, each bag is vacuum packed according to the best packaging standards in Japan and a little nitrogen is added so that the tea is protected from oxidation in the best possible way.
Ideal for these teas is a black tokoname kyusu (reduction brandy, all-rounder for all types of green tea).
Ideal for all teas is a high quality tea caddy made of cherry bark (solid wood, Kabazaiku Chazutsu), alternatively a cheaper, internally coated, airtight tea caddy.
