With more than four centuries of experience at their craft, the Kikuchi Hojudo foundry is a true leader in Wazuqu steel (a Japanese steel of very high quality).
Here is a very nice aromatic black tea from Sichuan composed of fine golden buds. Its liquor, supple and full, has stunning floral (peony) and fruity aromas, supported by its gourmet (buckwheat honey) and resinous character. A powerful and elegant tea which gently unfolds its long sweet finish.

Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
This exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.
