Special New Black Teas
Distinctively different new tea offerings from China and Taiwan. The tea leaves are larger, have a bigger aroma, brew a little lighter liquor, seem slightly sweeter, and explode with goodness in your mouth.
Hearty, creamy Assam teas grow in the foothills of Northeastern India. Heavier and maltier than many other types of tea, the Assam’s strength of flavor supports the addition of lemon or milk. Assam teas are great breakfast teas. Estate-grown Assams, which grow at a higher altitude, have a depth of flavor that make them suitable for drinking throughout the day.
Ceylon, the colonial name for the island of Sri Lanka, is the third largest tea producing area in the world. Ceylon teas are what many Americans think of as “tea.” Broken orange pekoe (BOP) Ceylons support milk better than the orange pekoe (OP) or whole leaf.
Classic Blends
Black teas are as old as tea itself. In Europe when black tea first arrived, it was often blended and flavored to cover the wear and tear of ocean transport. Today it is possible to enjoy superb blends form high quality teas flavored with exquisite oils and spices.
DARJEELINGS Darjeeling teas are grown in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in the northeastern part of India between Nepal, Sikkim and Bhutan. Connoisseurs call Darjeeling tea, with its characteristic dryness and muscat overtones, the “Champagne of Teas.”

Keemuns are the famous “red teas” of China, often called the burgundy of teas. They cup a rich dark liquor and offer a smooth, mellow tea experience.
Lapsang Souchongs
Lapsangs are produced in the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. Dried on panels above tamarack pine fires, these tea leaves are permeated with the smoky aroma of the fire.
Nilgiri teas come from the famous Blue Mountain area of southern India. Teas from South India are the horticultural grandparents of the teas now grown in Ceylon. They are known for their pleasing fragrance.
Pu Erhs
The Chinese have hailed Pu Erh tea for centuries as an aid to digestion. Current medical tests have indicated its effectiveness in reducing cholesterol, giving credence to the Chinese tradition of drinking Pu Erh after a heavy, fat-laden meal. The large-leafed tea trees in Yunnan that produce the tea are closely related to the ancient tea plant of preglacial times.
Yunnan teas come from the Yunnan province in western China, legendary birthplace of the tea plant. The Panyongs, grown in southern China, are one of many lesser-known sub-varieties of black teas grown in China.
