"Autumn Leaves and Deer"
As depicted in the poem from the Hundred Poets: 'Amidst the deep mountains where autumn leaves are stepped upon, When one hears the calling of the deer, That is when the melancholy of autumn is deeply felt.'
Just as this poem beautifully captures, the autumn season is symbolized and cherished through its iconic plants and animals. The combination of the autumn leaves and the deer has not only been considered auspicious but has also been frequently illustrated in art.
Introducing our seasonal blend, 'Nariba,' inspired by the moist and serene ambiance of autumn.
Beginning with flavors reminiscent of the red of autumn leaves - such as cranberries and strawberries - the blend gradually unveils aromatic afternotes akin to Darjeeling tea and hazelnuts, enveloping your senses in a warm embrace.
This well-balanced blend is perfect not just as a morning wake-up cup, but also as an after-meal delight, or even to accompany your autumn desserts.
① A soft, spreading flavor of strawberry and cranberry
② The gentle tartness of apple and apricot
③ The lingering aftertaste of Darjeeling with a subtle nutty aroma of hazelnuts.

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.
