This black tea from the plains of Assam in India is composed of fine whole leaf and a generous amount of golden tips.
This Indian Darjeeling black tea is a perfect introduction to Second Flush and one of the best we have in the catalogue. The garden of Castleton, more than 130 years of experience and one of the most prestigious of the region, is essential tasting for any tea connoisseur.
This magnificent Darjeeling 2nd Flush style black tea comes from the Singbulli Tea Estate, a quiet little garden on the road into Darjeeling’s Mirik Valley. This garden has made a little reputation for itself with its exceptional large leaf clonal teas.
This exclusive small batch from the Turzum Garden in the Mirik Valley is produced with such exquisite attention to process. Is made from the leaves of a single cultivar that we rarely get to enjoy unblended, the P312. The P312 was developed from plants from Phoobsering in the 1970’s. It t is unusual to taste it on its own as it is difficult to make a pure tea with it. So it is usually blended with other cultivars for balance and complexity.
Produced by M. Qi, this tightly rolled black tea comes from the same garden as our Dejiang Long Zhu green tea in Eastern Guizhou. Grown at high altitude, it gives a warm and clean infusion.
Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
Easily recognizable by its long slender leaves, this classic Chinese green tea comes from Huo Shan County (litt. “Huo Shan Yellow Buds”) in Anhui.
This green tea from Anhui is one of China’s ten most famous teas. Its reputation comes from a very specific plucking, where only mature leaves are taken from the trees and the buds left in place.
Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong, this wulong has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet.
This tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley and has undergone a long drying process.
