This Teas of China Gift Box contains the following Chinese 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 Da Cha is known as the ‘coffee of tea’ due to flavours imparted by heavy roasting. This rare and unusual yellow tea undergoes complex processing resulting in a liquor that is very smooth with a roasted taste. The flavour profile is most similar to brandy or roasted coffee.
Long Jing Ming Qian Dragon Well is an award-winning 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.
Dan Cong Mi Lan Xiang from Guangdong Province in China is known for the honey orchid aroma and taste. The dark leaves produce a golden liquor that is light, sweet and fruity with notes of wild honey and exotic flowers.
Dian Hong Jin Ya Golden Buds is a supreme ‘pure gold’ black tea from Mojiang Hani Autonomous County in Yunnan Province. Consisting solely of buds, it produces a light and fragrant amber liquor. A smooth sweet and malty taste is punctuated with complex notes of raisins, red fruits and chocolate.
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.
