From the summer harvest, a limited oolong-black tea from Gokase Town in Miyazaki, which is made from the seemingly versatile Sakimidori varietal.

The combination of summer harvest leaves and a longer oxidization time than your typical oolong tea really helps to develop the wonderful fragrances of this unique tea. The whole leaves when brewed offer really sweet, rounded, succulent flavors in the mouth and a perfectly smooth finish with basically no astringency at all. Perhaps the nicest of all the oolong-blacks we were lucky enough to sample from the 2011 harvest and one we are very happy to offer!

About Oolong-blacks:
Oolong-Blacks, an innovation from a grower in Gokase Town, Miyazaki! Oxidized longer than your typical oolong tea, yet shorter than your typical black tea. Slightly different withering and firing techniques are also employ to create quite a unique category of Japanese tea! These are limited and still very much a new concept, so if you try them please let us know what you think!
