This top grade roasted tea is made from plants of the Yabukita cultivar grown without any fertilizer. Leaves harvested in 2013 were aged for several years before roasting, resulting in a refined, mellow flavor. Roasting both the stems and leaves together results in a complex, multi-layered taste that lingers on the palate. Deeply relaxing and naturally caffeine free, this tea will not interfere with sleep.
