Omakase (Japanese: お任せ, Hepburn: o-makase) is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you” (from Japanese “to entrust” (任せる, makaseru)).
The phrase “omakase” is most commonly used when dining at Japanese restaurants where the customer leaves it up to the chef to select and serve seasonal specialties. Customers ordering omakase style expect the chef to be innovative and surprising in selecting dishes, and the meal can be likened to an artistic performance.
Ordering omakase can be a gamble, but the customer typically receives the highest-quality fish available at a lower cost than if it had been ordered à la carte.
By ordering an O5 mystery box, it’s like saying omakase to the O5 team member (Michael, Geoff, Taryn or Pedro) who will lovingly pack your order. Each box will be curated with stuff they’d love to drink, and will contain at least one ‘off-menu’ item not regularly available through o5tea.com.
