This attractive tea is Oolong from gardens around the city of Fukuoka on Kyushu island. It is based on the Koushun cultivar and although not common in Japan, it is a whole leaf tea. Thanks to this, we can observe its handsome long leaves. This is a highly oxidized Oolong not far from black tea, however, regardless of its dark leaves, it is a tea with a smooth delicate taste. Upon first contact, you will be astonished by its distinct floral aroma. The brown-orange infusion has a pure fruity-floral sweet taste. Enjoy an exceptionally long aftertaste that lingers in your mouth long after the cup is finished.

Koushun is a unique cultivar characterized by the aroma of wild flowers with a fine mineral backbone and sophisticated astringency. It is quite different from the dominant cultivar Yabukita, its taste is highly rated for its strong taste, pleasant aroma and umami. In Japan, it became popular among the young female generation who liked this cultivar for its refreshing and floral scent.
