Generally, the best teas come from rural, isolated areas of Japan where small volume and high demand make procuring them difficult. Kettl has established relationships with several of Japan's most notable tea producers, providing the highest quality Japanese tea to over 40 Michelin-star restaurants and cafes in the world. This is why we couldn’t be more excited to carry Kettl’s teas in the shop. Have their teas made-to-order or grab a bag for home.

- Hot: 1st Steep: 7g of soba | 220g of water @ 200°F | Steep for 1 minute. 2nd Steep: 200°F | Steep for 1 minute
- Cold: 10g per liter of cold water. Allow the tea and cold water to steep for 6 + hours (you can't over brew it). Stir to release flavor and color. Strain and enjoy.
Storage: Keep the soba cha in the refrigerator. After opening, place the tin in a ziploc bag before returning to the fridge - this will protect the tea from absorbing any aromas from your refrigerator.
