Sip Green Tea With Totoro, New Studio Ghibli Tea Collection Announced
Studio Ghibli has often been referred to as the Walt Disney Studios of Japan, providing some of the most whimsical and beloved anime films of both its native country, as well as fans across the globe. Fans of Studio Ghibli were elated recently to hear the news that Hayao Miyazaki, director of many Studio Ghibli films who announced his retirement a few years ago, announced that he would be breaking his retirement to work on the latest Studio Ghibli film. Now, fans have another pleasant Ghibli-related surprise in the form of a new line of Studio Ghibli Tea.
As reported on Rocket News 24, the line of Studio Ghibli Tea has been announced to be arriving to Donguri Kyowakoku retail stores in Japan. The tea lines consist of three different blends, each uniquely inspired by Studio Ghibli films My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service. Each blend comes in its specially designed tin, reflecting its film inspiration. The star of this set for fans will likely be the “Napping Totoro” green tea blend featuring everyone’s favorite Neighbor on the tin taking a snooze. What’s interesting about this green tea blend is the ingredients actually come from the Sayama Hills in Saitama Prefecture that My Neighbor Totoro used as its setting.
The other two tins are themed around Kiki and Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service. The “Kiki and Townscape” tin contains a black tea featuring strawberry and blackcurrants, while the “Jiji and Butterfly” tin contains a rooibos tea that has strawberry, apricot and honey. These look quite impressive and it would be delightful to see a Catbus Chamomile. What do you guys think about this Studio Ghibli Tea set? What Ghibli films would you like to see get a tea blend?
