Yame Black: Truly a unique offering, our Yame black is rare in that the volume of black tea made in Japan annually is incredibly low.

If you are a lover of bright, malty breakfast style black tea - this will be a perfect fit. We describe this tea as being Indian or Sri Lankan in style with a lovely, mild finish. Made from the Benifuuki cultivar, Yame black showcases the possibilites of Japan's emerging black tea market.

We always wondered, what if someone put great quality tea in a tea bag that was designed to actually make great tea? Well, We didn't want to wait - so we went ahead and made it ourselves. Each one of these tea bags is made with real leaf in a pyramid shaped bag which provides enough room to allow the tea to steep properl.y -
