Sayama Wakocha


Wakocha means Japanese black tea. After the harvest, the fresh leaves are left for a whole day for withering. Then the withered leaves are rolled for oxidation. Recently the flavonoids in black tea are attracting attention as antioxidants that can protect health.
Put one teaspoonful of tealeaves per serving (about 150mL) in a teapot, then pour boiling water into it, wait for 2-3 minutes. Use a tea cozy (or anything to cover the pot) to keep the pot warm while steeping.
Use freshly-drawn tap water – water that is kept overnight or reheated is not recommended.
