1. Anhua Son Zhen Green Tea
Anhua Song Zhen is a green tea from an organic tea garden in Anhua, Hunan. A special feature of the variety is the eponymous needle shape of the processed tea leaves. This is reminiscent of pine needles (“song hen”) also in terms of color. The dry tea leaf’s mild and sweet, slightly hay-like aroma gains both in complexity and depth through the bright yellow-green cup’s sweet maroni notes.
2. Da Xue Shan Ye-Sheng Pu Erh Tea
Da Xue Shan Ye Sheng Pu Erh Tea is an unripened Pu Erh tea from wild tea trees growing at altitudes around 1900 meters in the forests of Da Xue Shan in Lincang’s Yong-de district. The roots of a seed-grown tea tree reaches as deep as 2 meters into the ground, this way making the abundance of the soil available for the tea plant. The tea surprises with unique orchid aroma and unusually creamy texture.
3. Huang Ya Yellow Tips Yellow Tea
Huang Ya Yellow Tips yellow tea is both one of China’s oldest and rarest types of tea. By the time of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) at the latest, yellow tea gained recognition as one of the most important imperial tribute teas. Then as now, mastering the particularly sensible art of yellow tea processing is a privilege of a few masters. With mindful preparation, the visually and olfactorily appealing 1:1 mixture of white buds and yellow-green shimmering leaves in the honey-yellow cup results in a mild taste characterized by fruity-sweet and hay-like notes.
4. Jin Mao Hu Golden Money Black ( Red) Tea
Jin Mao Hue Golden Monkey is a black tea from Fu’an county, in the northeast of China’s Fujian province. It convinces with palatefulness and a complex, slightly volatile and everchanging mouthfeel. The pronounced, caramel-sweet roast note harmonizes with a fresh, fruity note reminiscent of ripe peaches with a hint of orchid. The resulting aromatic compound lingers on the gourmet’s palate for a long time in the aftertaste of the tea.
5. Wuyi Waishan “Ai Jiao” Dwarf Oolong Tea
“Ai Jiao” or “Dwarf” oolong tea is an oolong tea typical of the east Chinese province of Fujian. Accordingly, the open-rolled leaf, medium roasting an rather high level of oxidation are major processing characteristics. In terms of taste, the tea is characterized by the sweet dried fruit notes typical of the Oolong teas of this region and processing style, melting with mild roast flavors to a perfectly harmonious sweet and mellow taste.
6. White Peony / Pai Mu Tan White Tea
White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) White tea from Fuding county, Fujian Province, China: perfectly balanced white tea, consisting of a masterfully harmonious traditional hand-picked white shoots with their corresponding top two tea leaves. Full-bodied, nutty taste body with fruity, slightly earthy and woody components, preceded by an aromatic bouquet of floral notes that awaken the connotation with spring flower.
