Some black tea fails to excite. After a sip or slurp, it hits the palate and kind of stays there. That’s not the case with premium old arbor black tea.
Our wild-harvested Lincang Old Arbor Black Tea is a generous tea with bold, potent flavours. It also has a malty sweetness that lingers on the tongue.
This old arbor black tea is an amazing product. And it proves that black teas have always had the power to surprise and delight the senses.
Put simply, we love this tea!
Brewing & Enjoying Lincang Old Arbor Black Tea
First, open up the spindly leaves.
Add really hot or boiled water to about 5 grams of leaves. Wash the leaves for 2-3 seconds and discard the water (the leaves need to open up a bit to provide the full flavour).
Next, keeping the same 5 grams of leaves, steep for 5 minutes for strength and sweetness.
NB: the “bitter chocolate” taste of this old arbor black tea comes through more strongly when it is steeped with really hot but not boiling water.
This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.
We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.
I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.
It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.
The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description
