Tea Review: Wakocha Black Tea (Azuma Tea Farm)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 12

Wakocha Black Tea
Azuma Tea Farm/東茶園
Type: Black
Origin: Japan, Wazuka
Product Description: Available on the website(Japanese).

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a spicy, peppery aroma with notes of fragrant wood and plums.

The red infusion has an aroma of brown sugar and apricots with a hint of flowers and a taste of caramelized, fire-grilled vegetables.  

The first steeping is the best, producing the most character and nuance, though the floral notes in the second infusion did become more pronounced.
