It is always an exciting time for us at Teavolution® to discover new variants and cultivars. On our recent trip to Japan, we stumbled upon this innovation- a Japanese Black tea. Those in the know are aware of Japan's dominance in green tea production but now that they are looking outside of this tea type and venturing into other types make us giddy, literally. So when we tasted this particular variant- a single estate black tea grown at high altitude and refreshingly clean environs, we were blown away by the flavor. How can black tea be so smooth and sweet and at the same time suffused with umami?
We'll leave the rest of the judgment to you but this one, you have got to try.
BENEFITS: Black teas are fully oxidized and have undergone several processes more than white & green teas. For this reason, its chemical properties also underwent changes but have not lost the many benefits derived from the Camellia Sinensis leaves. Black teas have Theaflavin and Thearubigin, powerful antioxidants that can protect the drinker from stresses of the modern life.
Note: High quality teas can be steeped for several more times. In the case of this blend, try steeping up to three times. Please do not leave the tea leaves steeping in water. Remove it as soon as soon as you have achieved the desired strength to stop the brewing process. Of course, if you like your tea strong, you can steep it longer. Now, hold your cup and enjoy your perfect cup of tea!
