Japanese Black Benifuki Organic

Although somewhat rare, black tea has been cultivated and produced in Japan for almost 150 years. Production is limited and seldom exported. This offering is produced in Kagoshima prefecture from the Benifuki cultivar. The neat, dark brown leaves yield a smooth, rich liquor with no astringency. A light grape-like sweetness may be found in the aroma. The cup is lively, with a light spicy/woody hint and a honey note that develops over time. Best enjoyed plain.

A big cup of tea!

Really nice full bodied cup with lots of cocoa and toast and the honey does take a while but it's there. Amazingly silky smooth.
