Our Teas

Watte Single Region Teas

The first sensory exploration with your cup of Watte is in your eye. Examine the depth and intensity of the infusion of the leaf, pale golden hues through burgundy to a rich, deep brown. Each tea has a different shade some very subtle in their differences, others more obvious; note the ring of brilliance at the 'rim' where the tea touches the whiteness of the cup. Next aroma - our sense of smell is significantly more sensitive than taste, and in many ways it is smell that influences taste. Each Watte Tea has its own scent. Before tasting bring your porcelain teacup or tasting bowl to within a few centimeters of your nose and savour the aura of each tea - from the almost greenish, delicately sweet perfume of Ranwatte, a high elevation, cool climate tea, to the heavy, almost malty thickness of Yatawatte from a warmer climate by the shores of the Indian Ocean.

Your first sip will reinforce the sensation you experienced visually by nosing your Watte tea. This is only the beginning of your exploration - for the best is yet to come.
