ZERO CUBES AJISAI MATCHA
ゼロキューブ紫陽花抹茶
ARTISAN GREEN TEA CHUFA CUBES

An exemplary union of sweet liquid of chufa and a unique blend of two different tea cultivars — Yabukita and Sayamakaori — grown in the land of Yame, the island situated furthest to the south in Japan. Introduces an effusion of sweet, soybean-like fragrance; followed by a subdued, nutty umami; and ends with a slight, lingering note of bitterness. Intensifies with every cube.

Tasting notes: Fresh-cut grass, corn, nectar, vanilla.

ZERO CUBES MOKUREN GENMAICHA
ゼロキューブ木蓮玄米茶
ROASTED BROWN RICE + SHADED GREEN TEA CHUFA CUBES

Features a delicate powder blend of traditional roasted brown rice Genmai and Niko Neko’s very own signature shaded green tea Kabusecha. Each cube encapsulates the sweetness of chufa, toastiness of genmai, and elevated umaminess of matcha; evoking a sense of nostalgia, warmth, and belonging as it melts.

Tasting notes: Japanese rice cracker senbei, seaweed, roasted soybean flour kinako, nectar. 

ZERO CUBES TSUBAKI HOUJICHA
ゼロキューブ椿焙じ茶
ROASTED GREEN TEA CHUFA CUBES

An artisanal green tea variant which employs highly specific roasting techniques to develop a sublime, multi-dimensional flavour profile. Unlike its preceding attributes, roasted green tea Houjicha boasts smoky, slightly robust, yet well-rounded earthy tones. Infused in sweet liquid of chufa, it transforms into a rich, candy-like, and savoury treat while possessing a relatively lower caffeine level — fitting for individuals with caffeine sensitivity.

Tasting notes: Chrysanthemum petals, toasted barley, roasted white sesame, caramel, cream. 

THE ALUMINIUM BAG
VACUUM-SEALED; SILK-SCREENED

Swathed in a silvery cyberpunk-inspired soft shell, the tasting box bore similar likes of gigantic space food and MREs; somewhat masculine and sterile-looking. The use of such classic material and packing method (though more a gimmick in this instance) implicates our long-time approach in food development to ensure zero contamination and maximum freshness.

THE BOX AND LID
FSC-CERTIFIED; 300GSM; BLIND-EMBOSSED

Slit the bag open, we reveal a pristine box constructed using 300gsm FSC-certified paper with an uncoated surface and texture resembling traditional Japanese paper (washi, 和紙). Blind inscriptions adorn the surface, its visibility metamorphosing subtly with different light and angles. As an ode to the craftsmanship spirit upheld by the collaborators, the box was designed to exude understated uber-luxury and natural aesthetics.

THE MESSAGE / PRODUCT CARD
FSC-CERTIFIED; 300GSM

A notched card made of the same 300gsm FSC-certified paper rests inside, allowing one to take a breather before plummeting into the focal point.

On the front, the card flaunts a vast space in an alluring shade of forest green intended for any handwritten messages. Information on serving suggestions, features and characteristics of each tea variant occupy the back of the card.

A high-opacity white paint marker has been specifically purposed for this particular feature, allowing us to beautiful, contrasting texts.

PERSONALISE IT, MAKE IT YOURS
COMPLIMENTARY FOR EVERY PURCHASE

We believe no human beings are made identical, hence personalisation is highly valued and executed here.

For every tasting box you purchase, we will honour your request by offering special touches should you decide to gift it to a special someone, or yourself (why not?).
