Wakoucha Japanese Black is a fully oxidized tea; once steeped it produces a rich and deep copper color, with a light to medium body. Our Wakoucha is bright tasting, refreshing, and a little malty with slight astringency. At first sip you will notice that this brews up a cup similar to a delicate Ceylon black tea, with a touch of earthiness, hints of cinnamon and dark chocolate. Try a rare Japanese black tea and discover a new favorite!
