Japanese black tea, or wakocha 和紅茶, is produced primarily using tea cultivars meant for Japanese green teas. As a result, the black tea that is produced tends to be more mild in strength than black teas from other parts of the world. Japanese black teas are recommended for those tea drinkers who enjoy unsweetened, unflavored tea.
Tea may vary depending on production, and may not exactly match the photos seen here. We utilize this product to practice and experiment with blending leaves in small 1-2 kg production lots. As experimentation we strive for a basic level of consistency but do expect differences from production to production.
