Ocha & Co. Organic Japanese Black Tea

ORGANIC JAPANESE BLACK TEA

Japan is famous for its green tea but there is also a small production of black tea too, virtually unheard of in the west. We supply a limited amount of a black tea made from a Yakubita cultivar, the tea comes from the same production of our organic green teas. It's black but totally different from the black teas that you are most probably used to. Hand picked young leaves. Fragrant, mild with zero bitterness. incredibly smooth.

Decent black

Have been buying green tea from Ocha & Co for a while and wanted to try their blacks as well - has deep notes with fragrance without overpowering bitterness

No bitterness, more sweetness, and no jitters

So I received this Japanese Black Tea and decided to drink some in the late afternoon. Wow I was very happy that the description is true to its word as far as being more sweet and having no bitterness. The feeling I got was happiness and no jitters. The energy is calming and makes me wonder where this Japanese black tea has been all my life. My favorite teas are Sencha and Gyokuro, so this Japanese black tea will be added to my favorites list. This black tea along with all the other teas I get from Ocha & Co are top notch, fresh, flavorful, and full of happy alert calm feelings. I will definitely be ordering more once I run out. Thank you to all who made this tea possible :)
