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.
Produced at 1600 meters in the mountains of Rwanda by a cooperative of farmers, this black tea shows the classic breakfast signature style.
This loose leaf Shou Pu er consists of medium-sized leaves from ecological plantations at 1600m in the Lincang region (China) was produced following international organic certification standards.
Our 2019 Zhengwan Sheng Pu er comes from a young organically certified garden as part of a new social project in Yunnan, regrouping farmers from more than 10 minorities among neighbouring villages.
From magnificent gardens, only a short distance from Darjeeling, the delicate leaves and golden buds of this fall lot have been transformed with care and expertise. The resulting liquor is sweet and light, displaying its rich floral perfumes, honey and subtle fruity (apple) and chocolate accents. Simply exquisite!
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 ?!
A black tea with seductive fruity accents that will brighten your day with its juicy peach notes. Enjoy without moderation on the terrace this summer!
Fragrant, woodsy, with notes of licorice, this Chinese black tea also has clear and comforting smoky accents.
High above the Western flanks of the Andes, in La Cumbre region, at over 1800m of altitude we find the luxurious garden origin of this organic black tea.
A unique tea with the barley and woody taste, often found in stronger black teas. The choice of cultivars adds a sweeter edge of sugar cane, cocoa and honey.
A great addition and a perfect morning tea!
