Nakazen: Okinawan 18 Blended Herbs for Longevity

長寿十八番茶

80g washi can or 80g bag 

Nakazen's 18 Herbs for Longevity blends 18 different herbs. The main ingredients are barely and job's tears making it an easy-to-drink tea. This tea also contains oolong tea and turmeric.

This is a tea that is very kind and gentle to the body, providing "Nuchigusui" (Okinawan saying) to those that drink the tea with a sense of tranquillity. 

Nuchigusui (ぬちぐすい) is a saying that belongs to the daily lives of people living in Okinawa and can be directly translated to mean, "life medicine". The significance is more expansive and can refer to the satisfaction felt after eating a good meal, experiencing something that makes one feel lighter, and feeling peace with oneself. 

The addition of oolong tea means a small amount of caffeine is present in this herbal blend.

Steeping Notes: 5g | 10min | 100°C | 250ml 

This tea also makes a lovely refreshing cold brew. Add 5-10g of tea to a large jug of water and leave in the fridge overnight.

INGREDIENTS: Barley tea, job's tears, sicklepod seeds, cat's whiskers (herb), dokudami (herb), oolong tea, turmeric, guava leaves, biwa (loquat) leaves, mikan (Japanese mandarin) peels, brown rice, pine leaves, ohbako, benibana, persimmon leaves, amachazuru, sarunokoshikake (fungi), cinnamon

Katsuo Nakamoto - Founder 

"It all started from my wish for everyone to live a healthy, happy life...

I was hospitalized during my late twenties due to a kidney disease caused by overwork and stress. One day while I was at the hospital a friend of mine told me about a tea made of “kumis kuching (orthosiphon aristatus or cat’s whiskers)”. Without having much knowledge on this particular tea, I decided to try drinking it. To my surprise, the kidney got better after a while, and that is when I felt and experienced the effect of "kumisukuchin" tea. Once I left the hospital, I wanted to spread the word about my experience with this tea. This is how I got into the business, which I continue on until today.

I hope we will be able to provide products that will help support your healthy, happy life."

Delicious tea

This blend tastes great and has a pleasant aroma. It's also good for rebrewing a couple of times. The storage tin looks very nice on the shelf. I enjoyed this a lot so ordered more pretty much straight away!
