Tea of the Month 
Samidori Matcha
Rich and smooth, Samidori has a subtle sweetness with undertones of banana and rosemary. Its forest green colour is accompanied by a delicate aroma of avocado. Made by grinding Tencha from the first harvest of the year, it is one of the highest grade Matchas best enjoyed on its own.

Organic Fukamushicha
Rich with a mellow finish, Fukamushicha offers some mild astringency with flavor notes of kiwi fruit and dill. Deep green when steeped it has a grassy moss-like aroma. Grown organically and steamed longer than other Japanese teas, Fukamushicha is denser and richer than the rest.

Sencha of the Earth
Medium-bodied with a smooth quality, Earth has mild sweetness with subtle hints of a ripe plum. Its bronze hue in a cup is accompanied by a hay-like aroma mixed with light notes of camomile. Grown on older tea trees of Zairai cultivar and harvested in spring, Earth is lighter than the other senchas.

Meet Obubu's Friends - Jordan

Who are you and what do you do? My name is Jordan Chen, I am the founder of Tea Box Inc. We are a tea retail company located in Taiwan. We focus on making tea cool so that young people will start to drink more tea. We use new and modern ways to make tea, focusing on branding and packaging.
How did you get to know Obubu? I found out about Obubu when I was doing massive research online about quality Japanese tea.
What is Obubu to you? Obubu is both my partner and my friend. When I went and met with Matsumoto san and Simona, they were both very friendly and helpful with any sort of questions that I had that time.
What is your favorite way to make tea? My favorite way to make tea would be the traditional way. Although, we focus mainly on modern tea setups and modern ways of making teas, I find the most calmness whenever I use traditional ways to make teas.
What message would you like to pass to Obubu readers and friends? Tea has been around for thousands of years, but in Taiwan - one of the largest tea drinking countries - it is slowly loosing its customers. The reason is simply because the younger generation found that tea was simply getting boring, so they turned to other substitutes like coffee. Like everything else in life, tea needs to evolve, but not so much that people wouldn't recognize it anymore. By choosing modern ways of making tea, our goals is simply to encourage young generations to pay more attention to tea again.
