This Chinese black tea from the province of Zhenjiang, a recent innovation of Mr. He, 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.

Mi Xiang Hong Cha

Here's a nice find from Hugo 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 !
