Nu Er Huan Jasmine Girl Rings is an exceptionally made jasmine scented ‘art tea’ in the shape of small silver rings from China.

Winner of a 3* Great Taste Award in 2017.
Long Jing Ming Qian Dragon Well is an exquisite green tea from China harvested in early spring. The light green liquor produced has a faint incense aroma and a complex sweet and savoury taste with zesty vegetal notes. Winner of a 2* Great Taste Award in 2018.
Wen Shan Bao Zhong is a 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. Winner of a 3* Great Taste Award and named one of the TOP 50 FOODS of 2017.
Organic Milk Oolong is grown from a ‘Jin Xuan’ cultivar in Mingjian Township, Nantou County, Taiwan. This tea is not flavoured but has a natural mild milky aroma, mouthfeel and taste. The clean liquor has light and sweet notes of cream and almonds. Winner of a 2* Great Taste Award in 2016.
Meishan Hong Shui Red Water Oolong is a complex high mountain tea from Taiwan. Tightly rolled dark leaves undergo multiple roasting to produce a complex and fragrant liquor.

Gui Fei Oolong is an exquisite and rare high mountain oolong from 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. Winner of a 3* Great Taste Award in 2017.
Deep Baked GABA Oolong is grown and processed in Mingjian Township, Nantou County of Taiwan for high content of the GABA molecule. It has been heavily roasted, so it has a comforting toasty and nutty flavour with a tart fruity edge. Winner of a 1* Great Taste Award in 2016.
Dian Hong Jin Luo Golden Snail from Yunnan Province of China is produced by rolling tea buds into small golden coils, or snail shapes. The dark amber liquor has a savoury scent of rye and soy.
