Japanese Black Tea From Kakegawa

Japanese Black Tea

Kakegawa black tea brewed in a Tochiri Banko-Yaki Teapot.

Coming to the end of October and creeping into the winter months, the good people at Yuuki-Cha are happy to introduce three all new organic Japanese Black Tea from Kakegawa!

Currently, we have the specialized organic black teas from Makurazaki that are handpicked only once a year in Spring from tea varietals that were bred in Japan specifically for black tea such as Hatsumomiji, Benihikari, and the award winning Benifuki, but also in Japan organic tea growers will often utilizing Spring or Summer harvest leaf of Japanese tea varietals that are commonly used to make green tea for making black tea, too, and when done with good intentions, the results can be excellent!

One organic tea grower we came across in Kakegawa which is a famous tea region of Shizuoka has been very successful at the above mentioned method, so much so, that he has been awarded gold prizes for all three of his Summer harvest black teas in the Japanese world tea competition 2010. That on top of the fact that after tasting them and finding them all delicious we couldn’t really resist to not release them!

The three tea varietals the grower uses to make these are the famous Yabukita breed, the well-revered Saemidori breed, and Yama No Ibuki (meaning mountain breath, life and vitality). Genuine 100% non-blended, direct from the grower, and sincere with your taste buds means you can enjoy and savor the unique taste and aroma of each varietal without any confusion!

    The curiosity got the better of me and I went ahead and ordered these. Do you have any brewing suggestions because I don’t see any listed?

      Brewing instructions would have been included in your order, but in the mean time we’d recommend that you look over the following. For one cup:
      2-3g leaf.
      150ml (50z) freshly boiled water.
      1-3 minutes infusion.
      You might also consider preheating teacups and teapot prior to brewing, do not use reboiled water, and avoid pouring actual boiling water over the leaf.
      Thanks for ordering & we hope you find one you like!
