Master Obayashi’s Hijiri Black

£9.95£12.95

A high grown Japanese black tea made by the Obayashi family who have been producing award winning teas for over 30 years. Grown on the Obayashi’s 10 acre tea farm in Okumikawa, Aichi on the mountain where the gods of the great Ise Jingu are believed to dwell, hijiri is the Japanese word for sacred.

This is an unusual black tea which is very light in body but shares characteristics with some of the best high grown Ceylon teas, particularly a fresh, sweet grassiness and distinctive Wintergreen flavour. Best brewed with off boiling water and 3g of tea per 150ml.
