Commercial Description

Although quite rare, black tea has been cultivated and produced in Japan for almost 150 years. Production is quite limited and rarely exported. Our offering is crafted in the Ikumi region of Shizuoka prefecture. The flavor is smooth, with no astringency. Light nuances of nuts and mace are present in the liquor. Best enjoyed plain.

Brewing Instructions: (from Upton Tea Imports)
