Grown in Fujieda, in Shizuoka prefecture, this Organic Wakoucha is a stunning demonstration of rare Japanese black teas. It has a clean amber red hue when brewed, and the aroma is sweet and floral hinting at the taste to come. It has a prominent juicy sweetness with notes of chrysanthemum and clove and leaves a lingering floral finish.

Our Organic Wakoucha is grown by Iizuka-san, a passionate 3rd generation tea farmer. His family is a pioneer of organic tea farming in Japan, having started using organic farming techniques nearly 50 years ago. Since the best wakoucha comes from the 2nd harvest which is the time of year when the tea plants are hardest hit by pests and because wakoucha has to wait for a year to develop its best flavor, large quantities of this premium Organic Wakoucha are hard to come by.
