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.

Darjeeling 1st Flush Singell Organic & Fairtrade

This superb lot is from the "Heritage" section of this classic garden, planted with 150 year old tea bushes. The infusion of its beautiful whole leaves reveals a clear liquor, lively and balanced, with a rich aroma making it one of the best Darjeelings this year. Its herbaceous and floral notes contribute a surprising lightness to this fine and refreshing tea!

Darjeeling 1st Flush Thurbo

This world class tea garden bestows upon us this heavenly clonal First Flush delight. This lot, composed of large leaves and curled buds, is typical of modern aesthetics. It’s light and spacious liquor ranges from scents of herbs and flowers (wild spring flowers) to supple notes of peach and muscatel. A perfect example of pure AV2 cultivar and the glory of young tea plants in the Himalayan soil.

Sun Moon Lake T-18

Here is a rare black tea from Taiwan, made using the well known T-18 cultivar which is derived from a cross between a large leafed tea from Burma (Ashamu) and a wild tea tree from southern Taiwan. Infused, its graceful leaves emanate smooth aromas of wintergreen, malt and tobacco. Lightly mentholated and generously fruity with notes of prune and raisin, its liquor is round, full and silky. A perfect tea for those special mornings.

Sun Moon Lake T-18 2010

Though still very uncommon, aging black tea is slowly picking up as a trend. When we consider the depth 8 years of Taiwanese storage has given this tea it must me a good thing.
