Product Description

Did you know? This is the first black tea we discovered in Yunnan and it remains one of the best. This whole leaf Yunnan black tea offers clean-tasting, whole-leaf goodness and natural sweetness and a delightful, malty aroma.

Take the extra moment you need to prepare (and share) this tea. It’s 100% worth it.

Brewing & Enjoying Whole Leaf Yunnan Black Tea

The spindly leaves of whole leaf Yunnan black tea first need to open up.

Add really hot or boiled water to 5 grams of leaves. Next, you can wash the leaves (2-3 seconds) and discard the water (the full flavour is yet to come).

After the initial wash, we recommend steeping the leaves for 5 minutes or more. The end result should be a strong and sweet tea with a malty finish. The same leaves can last for 3 infusions.

Finest Sencha

This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried

Yes!

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

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.

The Bordeaux of teas

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

Naturally malty and creamy black tea

As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.

A really unique Japanese green tea blend

As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.
