暮桜 - kurezakura -
There is no flower loved by the Japanese as much as the cherry blossom,
both now and in the past.
Among the hanafuda (Japanese playing cards), the picture of "sakura ni maku"
(cherry blossoms with a curtain) in March is famous.
The custom of enjoying cherry blossoms has been popular since the Heian period,
and it is said that by hanging a curtain between the trees,
they indicated that it was a place for flower viewing.
Instead of a curtain, beautiful kimonos were hung on the ropes,
and people enjoyed not only the cherry blossoms but also the kimonos.
In this blend, we have slightly changed the atmosphere
and imagined the purplish-pink spring
between day and night,
at the dusk.
The taste is a refreshing flavour that gently and softly spreads, like a strawberry,
with a rounded sweetness and aroma of plum.
You can feel the relaxed moment of the spring evening with this blend.
① A soft and fluffy strawberry flavor with the sourness of plum.
② The gentle sweetness of a warm black tea.
③ The lingering sweetness of round candies and honey continues for a long time.

We blended this coffee while being conscious of the balance between a refreshing sweetness and a slight warmth, aiming to evoke a first impression of softness and a dusk-like yellow tone, similar to cherry blossoms at sunset. We avoided making it too heavy or overpowering, to ensure a refreshing taste.
SEASONAL BLEND 2023について
The theme of this year's seasonal blend is 'Hanafuda'.
(Japanese traditional card game)
Japanese people often play Hanafuda, which is a traditional card game from hundreds of years ago. The designs of the cards are flowers, birds and nature representing each month. There are some cards that have unique combination. Such as "pine tree and clanes", "cherry blossom and curtain", "willow and rain".
Ages ago, people had a habbit showing respect for natural objects as they're so valueable. We beliave the reason why Hanafuda is being so popular is admiration for the people who lived with the nature of our land.
