Chinese Black Tea

Chinese black tea has a pleasant, full-bodied flavor and roughly half the caffeine content of a cup of coffee. Depending on the variety, Chinese black tea can range from smooth to sweet to smoky. Lapsang Souchongs have a lower caffeine content and a deeply smoky flavor, while Yunnan teas are smooth and strong. Some Chinese black teas may be mixed with fruits or flower buds to add sweetness and depth of flavor. Our loose leaf chinese tea comes in a variety of conventional and organic flavors.

Out of Stock Quick Shop

We are excited to offer this outstanding black tea selection as most teas of this superior quality do not leave China. Less than 9 kilograms was produced in Tong Mu, located high in the Wuyi Mountains (formerly Bohea Hills) of northern Fujian province. The large wiry, ebony-brown leaves yield a dark ruby-amber liquor with an inviting caramel aroma hinting of marzipan. The exquisitely smooth cup fills your mouth with a rich depth of flavor – toasted almond notes, hints of warming spices and honeyed apricot, a whisper of earthy smokiness – all embraced by a sweet syrupy quality. The finish lingers with a whisper of spice. This stellar selection is truly a joy to savor.
