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.
