This Around the World in 8 Teas Selection Box contains the following teas:

Yin Zhen Silver Needle is one of the most revered white teas from China. This Bai Hao version is grown in Fujian Province and consists solely of hand plucked tender buds. The pale golden liquor has a dry fruity scent with a light and airy character that is floral and sweet.

Makinohara Kukicha green tea from Shizuoka in Japan is made from a mixture of sencha leaves and stalks, resulting in a sweeter character. It produces a green liquor with a grassy aroma. The verdant sweet profile has satisfying toasted notes and a slightly savoury aftertaste.

Bitaco Wiry Green is a revitalising green tea grown at an altitude of over 1,500m in the Colombian Andes. Tippy green leaves produce a bright liquor with a light vegetal aroma. The smooth taste has vegetal, creamy and fruity notes and a slightly drying grassy aftertaste.

Dong Cheon Daejak Nokcha is a lovely summer green tea from Dong Cheon co-operative of farmers in Jirisan. Picked from semi-wild trees, it has a light liquor with an unusual aroma of toasted corn. The smooth taste is subtly vegetal and sweet with creamy and herbaceous notes.

Khao Hom Fragrant Rice Oolong is an award-winning light yet flavoursome oolong made from a Jin Xuan cultivar grown in northern Thailand. It is scented with a local plant called Nuo Mi Xiang Nen Ye that is known for its taste and aroma that is akin to rice and vanilla. The light green liquor has a sweet and creamy vanilla flavour with a fragrant rice aroma.

Gui Fei Oolong is an exquisite beauty oolong from Zhu Shan in Nantou County of Taiwan. The leaves of this ‘beauty tea’ are nibbled by little green leaf hoppers. This results in a supremely unique wild honey flavour, with sweet, floral and woody notes

Darjeeling Gopaldhara Moondrop First Pick is a supreme early spring First Pick Darjeeling from Gopaldhara Tea Estate. The carefully hand-processed leaves produce a golden liquor with a bright floral profile. The smooth clean taste has creamy, floral and fruity notes with a soft mineral aftertaste.

Tumoi Nandi Hills Black is a classic fruity black tea from the Tumoi Teas Cooperative based high up in Nandi Hills, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya. Dark amber liquor has a balanced flavour that is fruity, stony and slightly malty with notes of plums and a smooth aftertaste.
