This tea is from one of the famous tea brand, Gogo-no-koutya, which is usually called Gogo-tea ( Gogo-no p-koutya means afternoon tea) by big beverage company, Kirin. This tea looks like just a normal non-sweetened tea. But its unique point is in the claim of this product. That is ” official drink for rice ball (Onigiri)”.

But the unique claim got popularity especially from young people. You should get this tea with rice ball!
