From Kettl

We are proud to offer this artisan black tea from Kyushu Island, Japan. Black tea crafted in Japan is still quite rare, accounting for less than 2% of Japan’s total production. Our Yame Black is the perfect breakfast tea, made in the traditional Indian/Sri Lankan style; brisk and malty with plenty of sturdy body that can hold up to milk. A unique offering.

About Kettl View company

Cupped the loose version of this tea at work two days ago – Japanese black tea are interesting, and I’ve yet to have one that I was REALLY into, but this was the first where I thought that it was definitely nice enough that someone could be really into it.

Just, not me.

The main reason it wasn’t for me was because I found it steeped up rather savory, with a lot of natural black pepper notes and that’s a flavour that I tend to really dislike in my black teas. In addition to a lot of black pepper notes, I found it had a strong citrus peel pithyness – so the two combined reminded me a lot of rather pithy/peppery yuzu. Really interesting, and complex – but not a profile I resonated with.
