Japan (Wakocha)

Japanese wakocha (和紅茶) is one of the best varieties of black tea in the world, alongside those from Darjeeling, Sri Lanka and China. Its elegant yet subtle flavour which carries delicate and aromatic floral notes, as well as its strong and bright cup colour, puts Japanese black tea in a class of its own. Traditional farmers in Japan are starting to dedicate themselves to the almost forgotten art of black tea production in ever increasing numbers. We source our wakocha from award-winning farmers producing wakocha in Japan's most renowned black tea terroirs.
