Japanese Whisky


Japanese whisky has grown in popularity, so we were excited when this tea was offered to us. As whisky fans, we couldn't resist it! Japanese Whisky is a rare tea that comes to us from Shizuoka prefecture in Japan. It's made using the same cultivar as most Senchas, Yabukita. During its extensive processing, it is finished with an 8 hour smoking over wood chips made from Japanese whisky barrels.
