Add to my notebook

Coming from the modern new wave of black teas from China, this tea is composed of dark brown leaves rolled in the form of spirals. The infusion offers fine floral and citrus aromas, supported in the mouth by a sweet and delicious liquor. Rich aromas of root vegetables (sweet potato) and peanuts develop to raise its sweet caramelized finish to an even tastier level!

Jin Die Organic

This tea from Hunan Province is grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides and is made solely from lovely rolled golden-hued buds. The result is a surprising liquor that is both silky and aromatic. Rich aromas of caramel and mild spices harmonize well with subtle vegetable notes (corn, tomato, and artichoke hearts) to create a balanced and particularly admirable vintage.

Chi Ye Bai Ye

Made from 35 year old tea plants, this tea with 45% oxidized leaves underwent two traditional roastings over a wood fire giving it a red-brown hue. Slightly tart and sweet, its liquor is full and woody, enhanced by exotic fragrances of ripe fruit and opulent flowers. Its finish is deep and combines its buttery notes with subtle accents of wintergreen.

Cup from Makiko | Poppy

Much like abstract art, Makiko's spotting and clouding glazes evoke as many things as there are people to look at it. Landscapes, sweets, burning balloons... feel free to gaze all you want.
