Kakkoii Club meets The Manipulator aka Den Den!

Kakkoii Club was invited to a special preview event in London’s West End earlier this week to simply witness the impossible! Cafe De Paris was a hive of excitement and anticipation as (four of the seven) The Illusionists (Jamie Raven, Andrew Basso, Colin Cloud & Japan’s own Den Den) wowed and made jaws drop across the unsuspecting audience. We were also lucky enough to chat with Den Den, discovering his origins within magic and his excitement looking forward to spending time in London.

You’re met with an initial sweet taste followed by a slightly overpowering bitter and dry flavour.  This delayed sourness did spoil our enjoyment of the tea but this is all down to personal taste and preference.
