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.

A perfect tea for those special mornings.

A true delight for both mind and body.

Matcha Uji

A delicious matcha with an excellent quality / price ratio brought to us by the Osafumi brothers, second generation producers. This matcha comes from the mythical region of Uji, near Kyoto (the former capital of Japan), and more precisely from Ujitawara, hometown of Nagatani Soen, inventor of the sencha tea style. Its powerful and tasty emulsion offers a velvety texture and a slightly bitter-sweet flavor, with notes of oily grass and snow peas. A touch of gentle iodine tickles the palate, overshadowing everything.

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.

Xin Yang Mao Jian

From tea bushes cultivated on the region's highest mountains, this renowned tea is produced from a fine harvest of delicate buds. The smooth, cloudy liquor has a fruity and floral bouquet reminiscent of litchi. Upon tasting, this bright cup reveals its astringency, distinctness, and aromatic complexity.
