Product Details

For this elegant black tea, leaves from the tea bush variety Kanaya Midori are used by Mr.Watanabe. Kanaya Midori is a tea bush variety that is usually used for the production of green tea, while black tea is usually made from tea bush varieties like Benifuuki. This seemingly odd decision creates an important basis for the fascinationg character of this black tea.

The typical flowery nuances of black tea are created during fermentation from the bitter tasting compounds of the tea leaves. Because of this, Mankichi Watanabe uses not only leaves from the first flush harvest, but also from the second and sometimes third flush harvest as these leaves had more time to absorb sun light and create bitter tasting compounds. In order to create a fascinating black tea, is necessary to have a completely different philosophy than furing green tea production. The former is focused on changing the leaves compounds, while the latter can be interpreted as the conversation of the leaves compounds and structure.

Another reason for the characteristic and animating aroma of the Watanabe Kanaya Midori Koucha is the fact that Mankichi Watanabe only releases this tea after two years. While one could think that this creates a heavy, overwhelming aroma, it actually does the contrary. The Kanaya Midori black tea is highly aromatic and animates with ease, while also delivering an intensive depth. An extraordinary, inspiring and also elegant black tea.
