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.
Discover the highest quality teas, selected directly from the tea gardens.
This black tea from Fujian (Wuyi Mountains) has beautiful full leaves, slightly rolled into thin twists. The vegetal (roasted parsnip) aromas and malty, nutty and chocolatey notes are superimposed on the bittersweet character of the liquor. The presence of buds is also manifested by a floral and sweet finish.
These long mature leaves undergo a unique transformation in their home of Hou Keng village.
Here is a great production not to be missed, originating in the Wuyi Mountains national park, one of the best terroirs for tea production due to the quality of its volcanic soils and its most favorable warm and humid microclimate.
Harvested from mature tea plants with roots deeply embedded in the terroir of the Wuyi Mountains, this roasted black wulong offers rich woody and fruity aromas enhanced by its generous presence.
This organic Sencha green tea comes from Mr. Iguchi Yozoru’s gardens in Kurogi village, near Yame. Taste wise, it presents the typical elegance of Kyushu Island’s (south of Japan) steamed teas.
Here is a Sencha from our producer of Temomicha from the prefecture of Saitama. From these fine leaves transformed in the style "chumushi" is obtained an opaque liquor, of a deep and luminous green. Its pleasant viscosity is doubled with delicious vegetable, cereal (bran) and fruity notes. A small lot to discover before it's too late!
Our selection of tea bags contains the same teas that we offer loose leaf in our catalogue. The pyramid form liberates the leaves' rich flavours revealing the freshness of the tea. Each pack contains 12 bags.
