A very unique green tea with a brilliant floral aroma and taste evocative of high mountain Taiwanese oolongs. It has a complex sweet floral taste with a slightly sour finish reminiscent of Tie Guan Yin.
A limited edition tea of which only 1kg was purchased and will not be repurchased until the new harvest in October 2019.
Sourced direct from Arakai Estate, a small family run estate estate in Australia who have only just started commercial tea production having planted their first tea plants back in 2012. Although Arakai exclusively use Japanese cultivars, they have drawn inspiration from Taiwanese processing techniques and their tea as a result exhibits unique characteristics with notes reminiscent of both Japanese and Taiwanese teas.
Arakai's dedication to producing unique high quality tea has already seen them win awards for best Australian green tea and best overall green tea and best Australian black tea in the Golden Leaf Awards.
