Honyama Oolong from Japan

This hand-picked Japanese oolong is truly exquisite.  Oolongs from Japan are few and far between, as 99% of the tea that is made in Japan is green. 

There are many varietals and cultivars that are used in Japanese tea making and so if you're imagining that this tea tastes similar to Japanese green tea you would be mistaken.  Honyama oolong is made from a varietal called "Koju" which is a naturally occurring variant likely related to the "Inzatsu" tea family, which are themselves gorgeously floral and sweet.

In the cup you'll notice very obvious aromatic notes of grapes and fresh peach.  The liquor is light and bright and very refreshing.  It is truly captivating.
