A note from Murakamien:  "Murakamien's tea is formulated in-house, mainly using organic fertilisers, and uses as few pesticides as possible. The deliciousness and freshness of the tea leaves is reflected in the taste of the tea. We take great care in cultivating tea trees, sparing no effort even in autumn and winter. The flavour of the fresh leaves comes out as is in the tea. Delicious tea comes from tea leaves. This is the belief of Murakamien."

Smooth and delicious

I don’t know Japanese black teas very well, and this was a pleasant surprise. The tea is smooth and delicious, with a well-rounded flavor profile. It’s not too tannic, with a slight hint of sweetness. It tastes a bit like a good Ceylon tea, but is more complex. Very enjoyable.
