Ushijima Tea Company Yame Aged Black Tea, 50 g

Delivery to UK, EU, and USA* only

Perfectly rich black tea preserved for your consumption.

Harvested by hand and thoroughly steamed to release the sweetest natural flavours, this loose tea matures its exquisitely refined taste through meticulous drying and roasting of its rich tea leaves. Grown upon the famed hilly fields of Yame, Fukuoka, the misty region provides the perfect balance of moisture and sunlight to nurture fine black tea leaves that are steamed, rolled and twisted for up to 4 hours to release their deeper flavours and reduce any astringency. This calms the bitter kick and aroma of this splendidly soothing black tea, allowing its more complex, drawn out essence to develop as the tea is roasted and matured. Stored cool in a sealed environment so the aged leaves remain fresh and full of quality, this black tea is given all the time and effort to create you ideal daily cup.

The UK is no stranger to that most noble and ancient art of tea-drinking, so the dedication Japan devotes to tea-making is a comparatively minor culture shock for our English sensibilities. Sencha is the most commonly drunk green tea in Japan, accounting for 80% of all green teas sold there. Depending on how it is brewed (the temperature of the water, the length of time spent brewing), its flavour can range from light and refreshing to strong and sharp. If you enjoy a cup of sencha on a weekday morning, take a look at Japan Centre Online’s great range of sencha teabags and tea leaves.
