New Organic Green teas in store
Organic Long Jing & Organic Gunpowder
Come and try our latest additions to our range of organic green teas from the Zhejiang province of eastern China.
Our Organic Long Jing is produced by hand with great precision on the peaks of the Tieh Mu mountains. The leaves have a very distinctive blade-like shape: smooth and perfectly flattened. This is the result of skilled pan firing in a hot wok.
The tea has the aroma of roasted chestnuts and a rich, rounded and nutty flavour. The mouthfeel is buttery with a pleasantly dry finish. This tea is regularly judged by the Chinese themselves to be one of their best.
We have taken a long time to find an Organic Gunpowder tea that we really like. This tea is also from Zhejiang in Eastern China. The name Gunpowder was coined because of its resemblance to gunpowder pellets. The tea is withered and steamed before being roasted in drums and then rolled into balls.
Our Organic Gunpowder tea has the classic taste of gunpowder tea but without any bitterness. The coppery brew is refreshing, spicy and slightly smoky.
A perfect tea for a dreich afternoon
Smoky Russian Caravan
Smoky Russian Caravan is a wonderful smooth and smoky tea with a great backstory.
Transport yourself back to the time when tea was transported by camel caravans on the Silk Road. Smoky Russian Caravan is a blend of teas that could have been drunk on these camel caravans, transporting teas on the Silk route from Asia to Europe. Make yourself a pot and imagine the hardy folk keeping warm on those cold nights around the campfires with the smoke gradually improving the taste of the black teas and oolongs in the saddlebags of the camels. The perfect tea to enjoy on a dreich afternoon.
