- Unit Price
Near the eight bridges spanning the pond,
beautiful irises bloom.
This scene, captured in the heart of a traveler
by Ariwara no Narihira's waka,
became the model for the May hanafuda card.
The tranquil depth felt when beholding a beautiful landscape
is expressed through the rich flavors of blueberry and grape.
In the latter half, a sense of expansion like the early summer breeze is felt,
followed by the refreshing fragrance and sweetness of Darjeeling tea and La France pears.
A moderate body and chic flavor
make this blend perfect for the season.
① A gentle scent of blueberry and grape flavor

③ A lingering aftertaste of La France and herbal notes

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.
