Black tea is rare from Japan. Green tea is by far the majority produced but there are farmers rebelling from the norm producing black styles expressing local charateristics.
Wazuka Red is an interesting example, harvested from a single garden in the hills of Wazuka and made from a tea cultivar unique to Japan. A different taste of what you might expect from the land of green tea.
Soft and mellow with deep lingering flavour, refreshing without astringency.
