Curious Tea Introductory Premium Tea Taster Selection is a great place to start exploring the world of gourmet loose-leaf tea. The Selection consists of 4 carefully selected different premium tea varieties for you to try. We make them as varied and distinct as possible to help you decide which type of teas you prefer. Each tea comes in a 10g pouch, enough to make a minimum of 4 cups of tea. Almost all of our teas can be brewed more than once so you should be able to get 30+ cups from each selection box!
In contrast to the standard Introductory Tea Taster Selection, this selection features some of our more premium and rare teas for you to try.
We change the selection of teas in our Introductory Premium Tea Taster Selection box from time to time to ensure you are getting the best variety possible. Be sure to check this page for any new selections you may want to try! Our current selection in this box consists of the following:
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.
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.
Alishan Milk Oolong is made from a ‘Jin Xuan’ cultivar grown high up in the Alishan Scenic Area of Taiwan. It has a subtle natural milky aroma, mouthfeel and taste. Clean and fresh tasting, with sweet notes of wild flowers and vanilla.
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.
