Wakocha Japanese Black
Wakocha is a unique Japanese black tea. This delightful organic tea from Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan is made from a cultivar traditionally used for green tea. When processed in the Chinese method as a black tea, it produces a lovely brew that has an incredibly fresh and smooth finish without any of the bitterness of other varieties of black tea. Full bodied character with a delicious sweetness, lingering floral taste and fruity aroma. It is strong and bold but has sweetness, elegance yet low astringency. A truly elegant, delicious black tea! Highly recommended. Quantities are limited.
