Japanese Whisky


Packaging Type

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.
