Japan is not well known for its black teas. It took us five years of research (and tastings) to find a decent representative of this unusual tea style with a true sense of identity.
This innovation from Japan features a tea from a controlled fermentation with an assorted mix of fine khaki leaves. Its dark red liqueur is rich and full, with powerful aromas of dried fruit, bark and roasted cereal. Hints of spices (vanilla) and sugar embellish the flavours of this surprising (and difficult to classify) tea: Pu er or black tea ?!
