Description

This premium organic black tea (wa-koucha) is made with the Benifuuki cultivar, known to relieve allergy symptoms.

The copper-hued liquor of CHISEN will delight your eyes, and its bright apricot and blackberry notes with a malty finish your palate. Notes of honey accent this tea’s mildly tannic liquor. It can be steeped for less time for a brisk and bright breakfast tea or steeped for more time for a more hearty, malty finish. It is a wonderful option for a morning cup of tea.

Harashima san’s koucha is made from tea leaves grown in the Yame mountains at 500 meters above sea level. A fully fermented tea, his koucha has a firm taste and sweetness similar to that of Assam tea - used for non-Japanese black teas - and also a characteristically Darjeeling flavor, and goes perfectly with sweets.

Hues of Autumn: CHISEN

When autumn comes to my home in Vermont , the rich colors and deep aromas of the forrest bring my focus inward. I think of a cup of CHISEN to enhance the feelings of the season. In my opinion, CHISEN is a fine example of the perfection of Japanese tea cultivation and expertise. I find it rich in complex roasted flavor combined with delicacy. I appreciate the fine copper hues and lingering flavors that I feel are beyond any other black teas I am familiar with. I come away both content and in awe of this tea. It leaves my palate with a slightly sweet and elevated lingering taste to remember. Wonderful in deep winter as well. Thank you for CHISEN! Jean Sousa, Vermont USA

Full and rich

A lovely black (red) tea that I think highlights just how underrated Japanese black tea is. Fragrant, rich flavor. Wonderful for your morning tea to get you ready for the day. Full bodied and robust.

CHISEN

This is an excellent black tea and worth the price. In a porcelain gaiwan, the brewing parameters of 95C/203F allow the fruity flavors to shine. Using boiling water brings out the maltiness to the extent that it is very overpowering in my opinion. Chisen is a must-try for fans of black tea, and I will be ordering this whenever I am craving a good black tea.

J'étais curieux de gouter ce thé noir japonais. Plus gouteux que ceux que l'on peut boire habituellement.

CHISEN

I was looking for some black tea for the long and cold season here in Montreal. Compare with Chinese black tea , it doesn't have a robust burnt and smoky flavor, but the warmth and fruity taste fits my needs.
