This is an exceptional Batabatacha. The Itoigawa variety, unlike the Toyama Batabatacha, is not fermented tea. It is 40% classic Bancha, 40% Chamaecrista, and 20% Daizu (soybean), making it a very rare tea!
This tea has intense toasted notes, as well as coffee bean, cereal, and strong liquorice notes, all of which are complemented by a strong sweet taste.
