Black Tea in Japan
Japanese tea has long been synonymous with green tea, but in recent years Japanese black teas have also been gaining popularity. Compared to other loose black teas, they are very specific. The colour of their infusion is lighter, the flavour more delicate, more round and without much astringency. This is mainly due to a lower oxidation rate than we are used to with other black teas. This makes black teas from Japan all the more aromatic. Their quality is increasing year by year.
