Kumamoto Koshun Organic Kamairicha 2018

The Tea Crane

  • $1400

The Koshun cultivar is primarily renowned for its distinct aroma which is best expressed when slightly withered or oxidised during manufacturing and is therefore considered as a varietal, best suited to the production of Oolong types of tea.

This kamairicha has been only slightly withered prior to parching and rolling, thus faintly enhancing the Koshun cultivar's specific aroma.
