Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

Created from a tea plant cultivar so rare it is known only by it's registration number 7132, artisanal tea farmer Takayuki Tarui's black tea is cultivated pesticide free and without synthetic fertilizers. It is harvested in the last two weeks of June and "fermented" with Tarui-san's own method to create a smooth flavor profile that doesn't need to be sweetened. This is a black that will leave you in smiles!

Note: This product qualifies to be certified organic by Japan Agricultural Standards.
