From Camellia Sinensis

Japan is not well known for its black teas. It took us five years of research (and tastings) to find a decent representative of this unusual tea style with a true sense of identity.

Something both unique and resolutely Japanese in style, adding a new element to our catalogue.

Smooth, aromatic and bursting with warm flavours, our Yakushima Organic rides a fine line between bold and refined.

The new Geek Steep episode this week is very Japan centric and features Nadeshiko from Camellia Sinensis so I felt inspired this afternoon to pull out the other Japanese black tea I own from CS – their Yakushima!! It’s very round and full bodied with a low tannin/astringency liquor that has notes of rich syrupy red fruit, malted barley, slightly charred freshly baked bread, dark honey, and an overall woodiness and delicate minerality! The Nadeshiko is definitely a bit more up my alley, but this is very pleasant and perfectly complimentary to an indulgent afternoon red bean mooncake!!
