Mississippi Black Magnolia
From a family-owned farm with over 150 years of history in the United States and a focus on sustainable cultivation, this black tea is a great introduction to a promising new terroir.
The gentle rolling of long leaves into a twist with a few stems creates a soft, accessible amber liquor. The sweet notes of stewed fruit give way to floral fragrances towards the finish.
Fans of the Taiwanese Bai Hao style will be delighted.

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 !
Japan is not well known for its black teas. It took us five years of research (and tastings) to find a decent representative of this unusual tea style with a true sense of identity.

The Seeyok Tea Garden in North India produces black tea in a perfectly classic Darjeeling way: coppery and woody liquor with just enough astringency to accompany any breakfast.
