A very smooth black tea with no bitterness, but lots of flavor and depth.

Kenya Milma Estate, GFBOP1

Kenya Milma Estate, GFBOP1

4 oz. $5.19

This tea leaf makes a classic British cup of black tea. The steeped leaves have a lovely rich aroma with a pronounced mouth feel/weight to the tea liquor. A hearty cup o' tea with some woodsy/nutty notes.

Taiwan, Ruby 18

Taiwan, Ruby 18

2 oz. $22.89

Ruby 18 is a new black tea cultivar from Taiwan, in development for 48 years, that makes some of the most unique and wonderful black tea you've ever tasted. Black teas from Taiwan are almost never produced, yet this one is full-bodied, slightly sweet, fruity, and aromatic, with a hint of licorice. These entirely hand-processed, gorgeous leaves will take your breath away.

Only available in 2 ounce quantities.

Taiwan Mao Fung

Taiwan Mao Fung

4 oz. $17.97

These gorgeous, tippy, golden hand-processed black tea leaves steep up a deep gold-orange color and deliver an aroma that is rich and luxurious. The liquor of this exotic black tea is very smooth, thick, weighty, sweet, and complex. It is reminiscent of a black tea from Hunan or Yunnan, but it has elements of a floral note never found in those teas. This is a delicious and intriguing black tea.

Black Pearl

Black Pearl

4 oz. $19.97

These hand-processed black tea "pearls" are grown at 3600 feet in Sumatra, Indonesia and yield a phenomenally complex cup of black tea. There are sweet molasses notes with fruity, cocoa-y undertones, but also a brightness and clarity to the infusion. It has a long lingering sweet finish. It's an absolutely wonderful and unexpected find.
