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

Huo Shan Huang Ya (Mount Huo Yellow Bud) is a rare yellow tea from Anhui Province of China. Waxy green tippy leaves produce a pale golden liquor. The flavour is light and smooth, with vegetal and fruity notes that are savoury yet sweet.

Tsukigase Zairai Sencha is a smooth and refreshing organic tea crafted from a native cultivar in Tsukigase Village in Nara. Unusually, this sencha has no strong umami flavours. The light verdant liquor has a clean vegetal flavour with sweet, buttery, mineral and herby notes.

Wen Shan Bao Zhong is an award-winning delightful floral green oolong (pouchong) from Taiwan. Large twisted leaves produce a light liquor with a floral aroma. Similar to a mellow green tea but without any harshness, the taste is smooth with creamy and floral notes.

Darjeeling Poobong First Flush 2018 is a brisk First Flush Darjeeling from Poobong Tea Estate picked in spring 2018. The tippy leaves produce a golden liquor with a lovely muscatel character. The light flavours are a little floral, with mineral and citrus notes and a long lasting aftertaste.

Mengku Shu Tuo Cha is a ripe (shu) pu-erh from Mengku in Yunnan Province. Small compressed dome-shaped cakes from the 2011 vintage produce a dark liquor with a woody aroma. The soft flavour has a woody and earthy character with clean and creamy notes.
