China Tea

China: The land where tea began! Shrouded in mystery some 2000 years
ago her teas are as varied as this vast country. Fantastic green teas from
the mainland. Tantalising semi-fermented oolongs from Formosa (Taiwan)
Traditional black leaves and superb exotic white teas. China teas tend to
be light in flavour. We recommend to drink without milk.

We have coded the Teas by there characteristic fermentations thus

Delicate green tea from Formosa. Its name translates as eyebrow, referring to its trim curved leaf.

Tightly rolled grey/green leaf that unfurls into a deep primrose infusion with a pleasing twang of tannin.


Semi fermented black leaf, richly flavoured and aromatic. A slight sweetness, thats almost figgy.
