Curious Tea Introductory 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 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!

We change the selection of teas in our Introductory 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:
Bai Long Zhu White Dragon Pearls is an exquisite white tea from Fuding, Fujian Province. Tender buds plus one to two leaves are hand plucked and rolled into pearl shapes, producing a tea that is smooth, light and fruity. Tangy notes of yuzu are perfectly balanced with bright peachy sweet notes, reminiscent of a custard tart.
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.
Organic Milk Oolong is an award-winning oolong tea 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.
Dian Hong Jin Luo Golden Snail is an award-winning black tea from Yunnan Province of China, produced by rolling tea buds into small golden coils, or snail shapes. The dark amber liquor has a savoury scent of rye and soy. The taste is sweet and malty, like a sweet bread, with notes of cocoa and molasses.
