From Mountain Stream Teas

This tea is a special one. Grown at 1800m in the Chilai Mountain region, from the moment you open the bag, you know that this tea is different. The candy-sweet red fruit flavors that this tea offers are only possible with highly oxidized high mountain tea leaves from this terroir. This year’s production is one of the best we have ever tried. It is an unforgettable tea!

Many people consider this one of the best black teas they have ever had. We are counted among them.

2024 sipdown no. 34

This tea is really lovely, there are hints of cinnamon coming through that I have found in other high mountain blacks as well. The body is light-medium with a sweetness that is subtle and fruit-like.

Yum, love that cinnamon waffle character they sometimes have.
