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.

Mei Zhan Zhen

From the summit of Mount Zhenghe in Fujian (China), the long golden buds of this black tea are seductive simply from the chocolaty smell of the dry leaves! Once infused, they deploy intoxicating scents of lavender, lemon grass and hemlock. The liquor is rich, velvety and offers nuances of very refined pastries. A glorious tea, generous and unforgettable!

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.

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.

Darjeeling 1st Flush Jungpana WM organic

This exceptional batch, organic no less, comes from one of the flagship gardens of the region. Its long fragile leaves produce its golden liquor with a supple and oily texture supported by the body of its generous tannins. You'll find subtle notes of flowers and berries complementing the more classical aromas of amber, bark and sweet spices. Just lovely from start to finish.

Qimen Hong Gong Fu

Classic Chinese Black Tea from Anhui province. One of the most popular black tea in China. Made mostly from mature leaves with little to no buds, this type of harvest is Anhui’s specialty (the same is found with Lu An Gua Pian). Slow withering and oxidation give this tea great complexity and character. Bold and full-bodied, it presents rich aromas of malt, cocoa, ripe fruit and a subtle floral touch. The epitome of Chinese Black Tea.

Jingxian Jin Jun Mei

This tea from Anhui Province was produced in the style of the great Chinese black teas, Jin Jun Mei or 'beautiful golden eyebrows'. Gently rolled fine leaves and buds express an amazing wealth of herbaceous (tobacco), floral and woody fragrances. Its liquor is soft and has a slightly powdery texture giving it volume and body. Nuances of cocoa and leather give way to a volatile finish evocative of mustard seed. A complex and refined tea!

Nadeshiko organic

This innovation from Japan features a tea from a controlled fermentation with an assorted mix of fine khaki leaves. Its dark red liqueur is rich and full, with powerful aromas of dried fruit, bark and roasted cereal. Hints of spices (vanilla) and sugar embellish the flavours of this surprising (and difficult to classify) tea: Pu Er or black tea ?!
