Description

2024 harvest
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.

One of the very best black teas

Excellent tea. Nice slightly floral black tea, not too dry. Scent of jasmine, possibly. I reduce the heat a bit on the second and third brewings.

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
