Huiming Hong Cha

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTN-24

This Chinese black tea from the province of Zhejiang by our producer Mr. He, whom we've been working with for many years, is composed of long curly leaves decorated with golden buds.

In infusion, rich chocolate and gourmet notes (peanut oil) stimulate our senses. Its coppery and smooth liquor unfolds on the palate with an amazing complexity, combining tart, sweet and even umami (oyster) with its nuances of root vegetables (parsnips) and spices.

A silky tea from beginning to end.

Feng Huang Hong Cha

Originating in Guangdong, this Chinese black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang mountains.

Mi Xiang Hong Cha

Here's a nice black tea from Taiwan that is sure to appeal! The leaves of this twisted black tea come from Ali Shan. As the name suggests (literally black tea with honey aroma), generous warm aromas of honey, ripe fruit and flowers emanate from the infusion. Its liquor has a sweetness of baked pastry with notes from biscuit to molasses and cinnamon. What a treat !
