Black Tea

Black teas undergo a complete oxidation. The leaves, subjected to controlled heat and humidity, undergo enzymatic oxidation which darken them and which transforms their aromas and flavours.

Du Yun Hong Cha

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?

Feng Huang Hong Cha

Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region. These long twists release, once infused, charming fragrances of flowers and warm honey. Its liquor, slightly tart and flavorful, displays intense aromas of berries (blackcurrant) and roasted chestnuts. Enhanced by a delicate bite, tempered by its malty (barley sugar) character, its finish is long and comforting.

Hong Xiang Luo

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!

Huiming Hong Cha

This black tea, 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.  To learn more about this product, see this blog article.

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.

A Chinese black tea with a large quantity of buds known for its woody and earthy fragrance. Its liquor, sweet (malt) and crystalline, is supported by rich, tasty tannins that give it additional body. Spicy and floral aromas lighten this well-grounded tea.

Kenya Kangaita

This tea was cultivated in the Rift Valley from plants of the Assamica variety (the same grown in the Nilgiris, in Southern India). It was transformed using the Orthodox Method, which is odd for a region that is accustomed to producing more industrial type teas (CTC). The liquor is spicy (pepper, bay leaf), slightly camphorous, fruity, lightly burnt (toasted bread), and malty. The aromatics are well balanced and the tannins well structured. This tea is sure to please fans of black teas that are strong but not too harsh.
