An organic Japanese benifuuki black tea (wa-koucha) with a copper-hued liquor, bright apricot, and blackberry notes with a malty finish.

This premium organic black tea (wa-koucha) is made with the Benifuuki cultivar.

The copper-hued liquor of CHISEN will delight your eyes and its bright apricot and blackberry note with a malty finish to your palate. Notes of honey accent this tea’s mildly tannic liquor. It can be steeped for less time for a brisk and bright breakfast tea or steeped for more time for a more hearty, malty finish. It is a wonderful option for a morning cup of tea.

Harashima san’s koucha is made from tea leaves grown in the Yame mountains at 500 meters above sea level. A fully fermented tea, his koucha has a firm taste and sweetness similar to that of Assam tea - used for non-Japanese black teas - and also a characteristically Darjeeling flavor, and goes perfectly with sweets.
