Organic Black Tea kisses Shochu: The Little Kiss is a very special liqueur, because it is made from the finest black tea. This is organic Benifuuki tea from the Kagoshima prefecture. This tea is a very rare specialty - as Japan produces mostly green teas. The Little Kiss is extremely aromatic and has a great balance of bitterness, sweetness as well as acidity and is extremely fresh and easy to drink. The alcoholic base is rice shochu (Kome Shochu).
The Little Kiss liqueur is produced by Higashi Shuzo in Kagoshima. Only organic Benifuuki tea is used, which comes from Tokunoshima, one of the small islands in the Amami archipelago, which belongs to the Kagoshima prefecture. This black long leaf tea is deeply aromatic and captivates with its high content of volcanic minerals. Kyushu, Japan's southernmost island, is home to many active volcanoes, such as the Sakurajima volcano in Kagoshima, which makes for extremely fertile soil. Organic Benifuuki tea is a very rare speciality, as mainly green teas are produced in Japan. In addition, it has a particularly high proportion of bitter substances. The alcoholic basis of the liqueur is finest rice shochu (Kome Shochu), which is particularly mild and soft and combines perfectly with the tea. Little Kiss is a great symbiosis of bitters, sweetness and acidity, and is extremely fresh and pleasantly easy to drink.
Little Kiss tastes great on the rocks or well chilled pure. In combination with soda, the bitter substances come especially well to the fore. Little Kiss is also great mixed with milk or ginger ale. Due to the intense tea flavour, this liqueur is also a great component for cocktails, for example in combination with rum, barrel-aged Shochus, Awamori or whisky.

About Higashi Shuzo
Higashi Shuzo was founded in 1915 in Kagoshima City and has been producing the finest shochu and liqueurs ever since. The distillery uses only the best ingredients that nature has to offer for the production. The area around the distillery is blessed with particularly high quality spring water. This is of course particularly important for the production of alcoholic specialities, and you can taste it. It is not for nothing that a wise Japanese proverb says: "Where you find good water, you will also find good sake" (the word sake is generally a generic term for alcoholic beverages in Japan). Higashi Shuzo combines traditional production methods with new techniques, such as research into how to use yellow koji and other materials whose temperature is considered difficult to control.
