Harvest Date: May 2017

The vast majority of tea grown in Japan is green tea. Black tea is also produced in Japan, but it is exceedingly rare. This black tea is produced by a specialist in Miyazaki who uses the old-school Kamairicha pan-roasting techniques adopted from Korea and Japan to dry the black tea after oxidation.


Origin

Miyazaki, Japan

Tasting Notes

By aging this tea in Japanese Whiskey barrels, it accentuates a rich dark chocolate taste profile . We love the layers of honeyed sweetness and notes of blackcurrant imparted into the tea through barrel aging.
