Part of my mytholotea series. Kaguya, according to Japanese legend, was found inside a glowing bamboo shoot by a wood-cutter when she was just a baby. She is said to have had unusual hair that shone with a light like the moon. The wood-cutter and his wife adopted her and raised them as their own child, but eventually she discovered that she was actually from Tsuki-no-Miyako, or The Capital of the Moon. Soon after, she had to return to the moon, but not before capturing the heart of the Emperor of Japan. Before leaving to the moon, Kaguya gave the Emperor the elixir of immortality, but he couldn't bare the thought of being immortal without her so he ordered his servants to take the elixir and burn it on the tallest mountain in Japan (the one closest to the moon). Thusly, the mountain became known as Mount Fuji, after the Japanese word for immortality (fushi). Suggested brewing instructions: 180° for 3-5 mins.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2 minutes.
