Minami-sayaka Organic Oolong

The Tea Crane

  • $1200

This brand is produced in the Gokasé region of Miyazaki prefecture. The current batch is from the May 2017 Spring harvest of the Minami-sayaka cultivar. Once diligently withered and allowed to ferment only minimally, the leaves of this species take on a fresh fragrance. This tea carries in its aroma a trace of citrus, followed by a lingering flowery aftertaste. Its flavour has some bitterness, but the sweetness of an Oolong produced from green tea leaves cultivated in Japan can be almost overwhelming.
