Japan 2015 Bancha Goishicha Dark Tea

Z - Archive

A truly unique tea that is rarely found within Japan, let alone outside. It possesses an incredible aroma and an equally unusual and lingering sour taste with elements of lemon, mushroom and soya sauce.

The tea has an equally unique method of processing to go match its unique taste; it is double fermented with bancha leaves steamed, stacked, mat flattened, left to ferment on the ground and finally stacked within a barrel to undergo a second fermentation.

Tasting Notes:
- Completely unique aroma
- Lingering sour taste with elements of lemon, mushroom and soya sauce.
