$12.00


This tea is a high-quality wa-kocha black tea produced on organic farms, and is therefore both safe and unsullied: free of anything known to be unhealthy, and uncontaminated as to flavor. In addition, it is cultivated and treated by means of orthodox manufacturing methods.

Clear

This brand is produced from bushes grown from seeds of a Yamato Midori cultivar. As this cultivar is a variety chiefly used in the production of sencha, only the later, coarser leaves are employed in the production of black tea, this resulting in a slightly more bitter and astringent flavor. However, since what has produced this leaf is a green tea cultivar, its aroma will, if compared with that of other black teas, be found to be clearer and more refreshing.

  1. Amanda Freeman

    What a pleasantly light and crisp mouthfeel! Not astringent or dry, the tea is like eating an orange, being slippery and smooth with an underlying brightness that really livens up the palate. The taste starts out nutty and a bit starchy, with a sesame and yam combination, this pretty quickly switches to mangosteen and orange blossoms with a lingering orange marmalade finish that sticks around into the aftertaste. It sticks around for several solid steeps, keeping my mouth very occupied by the enlivening citrus notes.

  2. The tea fan (verified owner)

    A whole range of subtle tastes in this typically Japanese black tea. Highly recommended….if you start discovering the black teas with this one the other ones will pale in comparison.
