Organic black tea from Japan

Japanese black tea from Yakushima island located in East China Sea, to the south from Kyushu island.Tropical climate, mighty Pacific Ocean, breathtaking and sparkling pure nature…, that all gives the teas from this island totally exceptional and unique character.
Dry leaf with a higher level of oxidization (although not fully oxidized), nicely rolled, with pleasant slightly baked tones in aroma recalling mountain oolongs. Golden-brown in a cup with full creamy flavor, with slightly baked or even exotic spicy tones with a hint of fresh peaches.

How to prepare Yakushima Black Tea

Use 5 grams of tea leaves for 0.5 litre of boiling water cooled to 85-90 °C, steep for 2–3 minutes. Feel free to experiment with steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves. You can also read our articles on tea preparation and water quality. These tea leaves are also suitable for Asian-style preparation, which includes multiple infusions: you steep 5 grams of tea leaves per 150 ml of water that has boiled and cooled to 85–90 °C for 20 seconds and in the following three infusions, you steep the leaves for 30, 40, and 60 seconds, respectively.
