Last Chance Teas

Some of our best teas are made in very limited production. The farmer may only be able to make 50 pounds of a very special tea. That's it. When that 50 pounds is gone, it's gone - just like a fine, aged, vintage wine.

This Last Chance section is where we offer, at a 20% discount (unless otherwise noted), the very last of some of our very best teas, before they are gone.

This exceptional first flush black tea is from the smallest Darjeeling tea garden. Family owned since 1881 Giddapahar makes exceptional teas with an incredible eye to detail. This tea is a little "greener" than most Darjeeling first flushes; a little lighter, a little kinder & gentler, it has a great aroma with sweet floral notes and just a hint of a bright note in the background.

Nine Glorious Mountains | Green Tea

Nine Glorious Mountains | Green Tea

4 oz. $11.18

Jiu Hua Shan, which translates to "Nine Glorious Mountains", is truly one of the more remote, lush, and exotic places on Earth. Located in Anhui's Quingyang county (just northwest of Huang Shan mountain), it is one of the four sacred Buddhist peaks - it's breathtaking views making it a popular refuge for Buddhist monks. The old Chinese saying is "Scattered in the clouds and mist of Jiu Hua mountain are a thousand temples." A slight exaggeration, but 78 of them are noted to exist today.

Legend has it that a monk, ill from the rigors of isolated meditation, regained his health after drinking the liquor of the tea plants from the mountain. This particular lot of Mao Feng ("downy tip") has large twisted downy leaves and a spring-time garden scent. The steeped liquor is sweet, smooth, with a slight citrus/spice tang, and a silky lingering texture to the aftertaste. This exceptional green tea is handmade in Quingyang county, Anhui province, China.
