This highly aromatic black tea from Fujian is one of M. He’s recent experimentations. Skilfully transformed following the Chinese methods for black tea, the Jin Guan Yin (a cultivar from the Wuyi Mountains normally used for wulong production) reveals an exceptionally smooth and fruity profile.

Thanks to our passionate Guizhou producers, we have a new Chinese black tea on the menu. Using a white tea cultivar (Fuding Da Bai), the liquor is textured, sweet with a slightly acid character. The woody and malty notes resulting from the oxidation are enhanced with aerial, floral and spicy dimensions.
A rich and sweet tea worthy of some beautiful pairings ... did somebody say Speyside Scotch?
- Cultivar: Fuding Da Bai

This black tea comes from the luxurious gardens of Jeju Island, located just a few kilometers off the Korean coast. Formed by volcanic eruptions, Jeju is prime location for the Osulloc tea farms.
