Yamabuki-Nadeshiko 山吹撫子 is the only fermented Japanese tea. It is named after two flowers: the Kerria japonica and the Dianthus superbus. It evokes images of floral fragrance and feminine beauty. The process of fermentation used here is reminiscent of the fermentation of Pu Er tea. This tea is the product of several years of expert research into processes of fermentation with the Japanese alcoholic rice beverage Sake by Denbei Kawamura, who applied the process of fermentation of Sake (Awamori) to tea. It is a “microorganism-controlled fermented tea”. So it’s a special type of dark tea. As opposed to other dark teas, the process starts in a sterilized room and in such a manner that only the koji mold (Aspergillus oryzae) ferments the tea leaves. Koji is quite an important fungus in China and Japan. It is used in sake, miso and soy sauce.

Yamabuki nadeshiko is richer in catechins than other dark teas, has two new polyphenols: teadenol A and teadenol B, and also contains gallic acid and citric acid.

In terms of taste, the experienced tongue will detect liquorice, caramel, malt, plums, all enveloped in a flavour of fine liqueur. Professor Kawamura considers this tea beneficial to health, primarily for adults with diabetes. The tea contains markedly less caffeine than regular green tea.
