Wakocha in Wazuka

Wazuka town in Kyoto is known as the high-quality tea producing area. Especially, their Sencha  is one of the best in Japan, and the town has contributed Japanese tea culture to be flourished.

Now, at the traditional tea producing area, a newcomer,Wakocha (Japanese black tea), is born. In general, Wakocha has less tannin and milder taste, so it is recommendable to enjoy it as black without sugar and milk. But, surprisingly, the one (especially, the black label one in the picture) even goes well with milk.

I really can see Wakocha has been refined a lot now. It is exciting to see the traditional tea producing area is creating new tea more, and eventually developing another new tea culture.
