A rare 'special-reserve' tea of which only 8kg were produced in total, it is made from the last two shaded rows of the plantation that flushed early. It has a sweet floral taste with a thick texture, reminiscent of some of the best greener Taiwanese high mountain oolongs.
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.
