China Black Special - This unusual China black tea yields a cup that is deep, rich, smooth, with sweet almost caramel-like notes. One of my favorite black teas. I believe we are the only folks in North America to carry this tea. This black tea sometimes is called Golden Snail.
Iron Goddess of Mercy - This is an absolutely wonderful Ti Kwan Yin style oolong from Fujian, China, done in the classic style. The modern trend is for Ti Kwan Yin to be a little sweeter and a little greener. This tea definitely has some sweetness, but that is perfectly balanced by just a tiny bit of baking of the leaf. The aroma and steeped liquor deliver a marvelous blend of sweet and toasty with a flavor reminiscent of roasted pine nuts.
Dark Rose - This “Dark” tea from Hunan province of China, is medium to full bodies, very smooth, with a delicious dusty rose flavor and aroma. Contains dark tea and rose petals. Comes in approximately 5 gram pressed tea pieces. Use one in a mug and steep a short time (one minute), or use one in a larger pot (12-20 oz.) and steep a longer time (2-3 min.)
TeaSource Green - This mao jian style tea from Hunan Province in China brews up light, smooth, sweet, with a very refreshing taste. It makes a great all-day-long tea and a marvelous introduction to straight green teas.
Silver Peony - This new and unique white tea has two major distinctions: it is made with fine teas from Yunan Province and it is a cross of Silver Needle and White Peony styles of white tea. It contains many silver needles, but also the 2nd and 3rd leaves, typical of White Peony. It cups up a light silvery/gold color, with a very light aroma, and a flavor profile that is slightly sweet, slightly grassy, with a little briskness that makes it extremely refreshing.
