Wakoucha Yabukita – Black Tea, Japan

This Japanese second harvest black tea is an easy companion for drinking tea throughout the day.

It has a smooth mouthfeel, mellow taste notes and nice sweetness.

This wonderful artisanal black tea comes from Toshihiro Kajihara’s family farm in Tsuge on the island of Kyushu, where fog regularly passes through the mountain foothills, and tea plants grow wild in the forests. It is with leaves from those wild growing tea plants that Mr. Kajihara’s grandfather started the family tea production that has expanded to 2 hectares of organically growing tea fields today.

If you would like to get to know Japanese black teas further, you can compare this tea with our wakoucha from the same farm but from the first harvest of Benifuuki cultivar.
