Our organic Benifuuki Wakocha comes from small Tokunoshima Island in Amami Archipelago which belongs to Kagoshima prefecture.

Only 27 thousands of people live there and the tea is produced by very small farm.

We usually don’t offer any teas from Japan, but this black tea is so charming so we decided to grab it for you and for us.

Taste is quite strong and full dominated by fruity notes of cherries, orange peel and this kind of pleasant fruitiness (longan, litchi) you can find in black teas from Wuyi mountain.

When you use longer steeps or high amount of leaves some astringency comes up but it’s not so strong to affect overall pleasant tasting experience.

Rare and interesting black tea.
