Pine Needle Wakoucha (50g)


This Wakoucha is a special needle-like Japanese black tea. Medium in body it has a lightly savory tase with some subtle astringency and underlying notes of molasses. The liquor has a beautiful copper colour with a lingering aroma of a freshly cut watermelon. In the production it has been rolled just like Sencha, that results in unique needled-shaped tea leaves. Pine Needle Wakoucha is a truly rare tea.
