[What is Japanese black tea?]
Wakocha refers to black tea made from Japanese tea trees. Japanese tea trees originally came from China and are classified as Chinese species. Compared to the Assam variety (most of the black teas in the world are of this variety), the Chinese variety has less tannin, which is the source of astringency.
Arrange the tea leaves on a bamboo colander for a day and a half to two days for natural wilting (gingko) to remove moisture from the tea leaves. When the moisture is completely removed and the tea leaves wither, the color of the tea leaves becomes matte and the flowers begin to smell, the tea leaves begin to be kneaded. After 30 to 60 minutes of kneading with a kneading machine, the enzymes in the tea leaves are deactivated to stop fermentation, and the tea leaves are dried to finish. It is carefully dried at a low temperature so that it does not become overdried.
