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 ?!
This Japanese black tea took five years of research (and tastings) to find. It is the first representative of this unusual tea style that we found had a true sense of identity. Something both unique and resolutely Japanese in style, adding a new element to our catalogue. Smooth, aromatic and bursting with warm flavours, our Yakushima organic rides a fine line between bold and refined.
