Though most people “think green” when it comes to Japanese tea, red trea has been produced and sent to Europe and Middle East from Japan since Meiji era. Nowadays, “Japanese red” is produced around the country, but in many cases the level of craftsmanship is far behind premium that of tea producers of Taiwan, China, India and Nepal.
Our “Yame Red – Yabukita” is produced by a tea farmer from Yame area of Fukuoka, Harashima-san, who studied red tea production in Taiwan. From the shape of tea leaves to taste and aroma, this tea stands firm as an example of new level “Japanese Red”, and we are proud to bring it to Your attention.
Yabukita version is more aromatic than Benifuki varietal
