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.

This tea was purchased by me.
