Very smooth with a light, refreshing tartness. The pleasant taste is well rounded with evocations of pastries and baked sweets with fruit notes similar to Japanese white peaches.

Picked from wild trees, this Shan Cha (mountain) tea has a distinctive, pleasant honey aroma.

    I enjoyed this tea Gongfu style, finding it durable and totally resistant to astringency even as I let the steeps grow longer into the session. The taste is mild, yet balanced and fulfilling with a candied yams blend of sweet and savory in equally satisfying measure. This is a good quality tea anyone could enjoy from beginner to a well steeped connoisseur: easy to pick-up on it’s qualities with no off-notes to forgive.

  • Taiwan Oriental Beauty

    $36.00 CAD for 125g
    The taste is light and sweet, with a smooth honey and muscatel aroma giving it a unique flavour, not unlike a fine mellow, black tea. The processing of this 'Champagne' oolong is characterized by heavy oxidation (60% to 70%) and heavy withering (13% to 25%). The oxidation process is initiated before the leaves are plucked with nature's assistance in the form of small insects biting the tender leaves.
