Description

This, for the first time, is a unique Batabata-cha from Niigata. Unlike the Batabata-cha from Toyama, the Itoigawa variety is not a fermented tea. It is made up of 40% classic bancha, 40% chamaecrista and 20% Daizu (soybean), a very rare tea! This tea is harvested from the Yabukita cultivar.

This tea reveals highly intense toasted notes, as well as coffee bean, cereal and strong liquorice notes, which are all enhanced by a powerful sweet taste.
