Whiskey Smoked Black Tea 


This black tea is made using a blend of first and second flush leaves of the Yabukita bush, the  most common variety among all Japanese sub-varietals of camellia sinensis.  The leaves were smoked using the wood chips of used whiskey barrels. The aroma and the taste of whiskey transferred to the leaves adds incredible richness and complexity to this tea. This tea is from Shizuoka prefecture.
