In the Southern part of Kyoto Prefecture, in Wazuka there is a tea farm mainly known for its delicious sencha. The farmers however came up with an idea 10 years ago and just to see how it would turn out started to process the leaves of the local native tea bushes. These tea bushes that have been growing in the area organically for decades, but at least 10 years, are called "Zairai". "Zairai" is not a particular cultivar but a hybrid of several different cultivars changing over time, but originating from Yunnan, China. In the grand scheme of things, these trees are not native to Kyoto, but by now they are still considered indigenous. The Wazuka farmers' idea proved to be a good one, Wazuka Yūki Oolong Cha is the one we can celebrate their efforts in.

The bushes that give the leaves for the Wazuka oolong are all around 50 years old. As they are relatively old (tea trees between 5-20 years old are harvested in Japan), their roots are long and extensive, absorbing a lot more nutrients from the soil than their younger peers. The rich, deep flavor is thanks to all these factors. The tea is pesticide and chemical free and meets the Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS).

Unmistakably oolong. This tea made the first impression of red (aka. black) tea but it's true identity is definitely oolong, creamy milky texture with fruity aroma and quick returning sweetness with some malty tone especially in first two infusions. Deep baking also resulted in coffee notes in the finish.

A medium roasted oolong with a sweet aroma and after taste. Liquor is clear and deep golden in color tone, slightly oily in mouthfeel. One gets to taste the toasty aroma that is balanced, not overwhelming. The toastiness in the brew is both nutty and fruity sweet. Wet leaves have both green and copper tones, giving off a sugary-nutty aroma. I think this could also work nicely if made into iced tea.

A very unique and appealing flavor, not quite like any oolong I have tasted. Has a Japanese character despite being an oolong.

This tea is such a surprise! It's very hard to find a Japanese oolong and even harder to have the chance to try an organic one (organic tea farming in Japan is really a challenge!). I appreciate the hardwork the farmer did to create a tea so special, so different from anything else. The leaves are beautifully curled, with spiky and reddish edges. This oolong is sweet, velvety and round, with notes of dryed peach and roasted chestnut. Perfect to drink in autumn.

I bought this tea out off curiosity. Now I know it is excellent. Delicate and tasteful. Oolong but Japanese . Perfect when I want to experience going to a place that helps to balance my mood in the afternoon.

A tea balanced to a Japanese style preference. Nice roasted flavor with a very mild undercurrent of stone fruit. Holds for many infusions. A mild astringency. Almost the opposite of many Taiwanese oolongs.
