Description

Rare Ichibancha (First Harvest) black tea from Kyushu, Japan. Japanese Yamanami Black is a Japanese cultivar that was selected out of seedlings introduced from Hubei Province, China. It was earmarked for making Kamairicha (pan-fired in the Chinese method).

The dry leaf is dark in color, but retains a certain brilliant vibrancy of green, the aroma is sweet, clean and fresh. Once steeped, the liquor is incredibly clear, in a deep burnt-red hue, and at first sip has an all-around sweet taste that is full and fruity with notes of malt and wet cinnamon. Typical of Japanese black teas with little astringency but its unique sweetness truly makes our Yamanami outstanding.

This tea is quite rare outside of Japan, it has its own unique taste and is rich, smooth and sweet while remaining strong and floral. Enjoy!

The wet cinnamon and malt flavors listed in the description are spot-on. The fruity notes are more in the background, but definitely there as well. One the best black teas I've tried and seems to have a warm and friendly character to it. Very unique and high quality.
