Basic Black Tea Collection

Our black tea selections represent the best of the growing regions of China and India. Our current collection includes 1 ounce each of the following teas:

Keemun - Known as the "Burgundy" of black teas, this organic Keemun is skillfully made. The flavor is mellow and balanced with some smokiness and notes of roasted sugarcane, orchids, cocoa and red wine. Makes a very elegant afternoon or evening tea.

Assam Golden Tips - This is a top-grade Assam that contains many golden tips. It has the perfect balance of body and complexity. Containing only the most aromatic young leaves, this elegant malty cup has a wonderful red wine-like aroma and leaves a desirable, lingering aftertaste. Makes a terrific and hearty breakfast tea.

Yunnan Golden Buds - Yunnan has been a tea-producing region for over 1,700 years and the tea plant is thought to have originated in the area. Known as “Jin Ya” in China, this rare, top-grade Yunnan is picked in the early spring when the tea plants are budding with the year’s new growth. Yunnan Golden Buds brews a rich, flavorful cup with lingering notes of honey and spice.

2nd Flush Darjeeling - Grown high in the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range, this classic black tea has a clean taste with a hint of muscatel grapes and a fruity aroma.

We may substitute a comparable tea in the case that one of the designated teas is not available.
