YUKIGUNI KOCHA 50g (Japanese Black Tea)
Product available in store only : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
When talking about black tea, Darjeeling and Assam usually come to mind, but there is also wakocha, a black tea made in Japan from Japanese tea leaves. While black teas are generally characterized by a strong astringency and aroma, the astringency of wakocha is less pronounced, in favour of a milder taste. This is probably one of the reasons for the success of wakocha in recent years.
Yukiguni Kocha is made from leaves picked from century-old tea trees and has a sweet aroma typical of this Japanese tea. A sweetness that can be found in the taste and which makes the addition of sugar dispensable. Black tea is attracting more and more attention because it goes well with both Western and Japanese pastries.
