This connoisseur gift box contains the following white, yellow, green, oolong, black and pu-erh teas:

Yin Zhen Guangxi Silver Needle is a delicate and flavoursome Yin Zhen from an unusual terroir in Guangxi Province where the neat silver leaves are picked from Fujian Bai Hao cultivar plants. It produces a fruity and woody liquor with a lasting, clean aftertaste and sweet honey notes. Winner of a 1* Great Taste Award in 2020.

Huo Shan Huang Ya is a famous tea from Jin Ji Shan in Huo Shan County. It undergoes a Men Huang process of piling and steaming to mellow the flavours. Resulting tippy leaves produce a smooth light liquor with a thick mouthfeel and vegetal, savoury and nutty notes.

Ashikita Zairai Kamairicha is an unusual Japanese green tea grown from a native cultivar in Ashikita District of Kumamoto Prefecture. This kamairicha is pan-fried, resulting in a balanced character. It has a savoury profile and a flavour that is grassy and sweet with floral and citrus notes. Winner of a 2* Great Taste Award in 2018.

Alishan Milk Oolong is a high mountain oolong grown at an altitude of 1,200m in Alishan. It is crafted from the Jin Xuan cultivar, known for a natural subtle milky aroma, mouthfeel and taste. The soft creamy profile has floral and sweet notes with a clean and fresh aftertaste. Winner of a 1* Great Taste Award in 2021.

Assam Kathaldanga Royal Gold is a classic Second Flush Assam grown on the banks of Brahmaputra River. Tippy leaves are carefully hand processed to create a robust tea with a malty and mineral character. The clean taste has notes of molasses and leather with a tangy tannic aftertaste.

Haiwan Mini Brick Ripe Pu-erh is a 2012 vintage mini brick shu pu-erh from Haiwan Tea Factory. Each brick is a roughly 5g in weight and is loosely pressed. The liquor produced is a dark colour with a woody aroma. The taste is clean and rich with earthy notes of wood and walnuts.
