ORGANIC JAPANESE BLACK TEA

Japanese black tea is much rarer and produced in limited amounts compared to the more abundant green tea. We supply a small amount of black tea made from a Benifuuki cultivar grown in the same location as our regular green tea and matcha. Black tea is called 'wakocha' and is totally different from the black teas that you are most probably used to. Hand-picked young leaves. An incredibly smooth and mild tea with zero bitterness.

  • 100g
  • ECOCERT Organic Certification
  • 100% Benufuki cultivar
  • Loose Leaf Blend
  • Blended for us by the winner of the 46th Japanese Ministry of Agriculture Tea Competition (2016) the most prestigious tea competition in Japan
  • Small batches are made each month to ensure long shelf-life

Satisfying & Delicious

This harvest / vintage seemed different and stronger than previous batches, but after finding the right balance, the taste is very satisfying and delectable.
Thanks Ocha for providing these great products.

Give it a name

The tea is excellent both as a self drinker and traditionally with milk and sugar. I am puzzled by the lack of an identifier on the package. All the other teas I purchase from China, Columbia, USA, and Japanese growers put the name of the tea and sometimes the varietal on the package. Your package says quite generically "Japanese black tea". I intended to purchase Benefuuke black tea, it would be nice to have my selection confirmed on the labeling.

Different, worth a try

This wakocha tastes better than it smells! The scent can be slightly offputting- slightly rubbery and marine. Once brewed (slightly lighter than instructions called for), it tastes better.

The Organic Japanese Black Tea

A lovely and smooth cup of tea. When having it hot, I tasted the citrus notes with no bitterness:) Another day I tried it as a cold ice tea and it was just as good and enjoyable! I thoroughly enjoyed my Japanese Black tea experience! Thank you Ocha & Co Tea!

Morning brew

I wake up every morning to this earthy sweet aroma steaming in my cup. I always add a touch of buckwheat honey and cinnamon. Dark amber 😋
