Yakushima Organic

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTN-147

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.

Something both unique and resolutely Japanese in style, adding a new element to our catalogue.

Smooth, aromatic and bursting with warm flavours, our Yakushima Organic rides a fine line between bold and refined.

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.

Mi Xiang Hong Cha

Here's a nice black tea from Taiwan that is sure to appeal! The leaves of this twisted black tea come from Ali Shan. As the name suggests (literally black tea with honey aroma), generous warm aromas of honey, ripe fruit and flowers emanate from the infusion. Its liquor has a sweetness of baked pastry with notes from biscuit to molasses and cinnamon. What a treat !
