Description

Palais des Thés is delighted to bring you this incredible black tea from Japan. Its flavorsome, fruity notes mingle harmoniously with notes of cereals, leather, honey and vanilla. Towards the finish it develops a touch of astringency. An exceptional premium tea to try as soon as possible.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“For the first time in 30 years, here is a very good black tea from Japan. It is produced above Kagoshima, directly south of Satsuma, using the benifuki variety, by Mr Kumada, a farmer who is extremely respectful of nature, soil quality and biodiversity. It is worth trying this excellent premium tea.”
