Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong

Although often heavily smoked and used to make Lapsang Souchong, this Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong (“Wu Yi Mountain Small Tea Plant”) is processed in the traditional style of black tea and has notes of dark chocolate with a surprisingly sweet finish.

Great black teas like this one don’t require additives like milk and sugar to enhance their deliciousness, as their sophisticated and enigmatic personalities sing harmoniously on their own.

Assamica Gold Needle

Assamica Gold Needle is a pure Assamica tea from the world-famous Yunnan region in China.

Rich, bold, and sweet with notes of dark chocolate, malt, and baked goods. It might even remind you of a chocolate chip cookie!

The flavor is very sweet, but there is a slight mineral astringency to counter it. The depth and thick viscous texture of the tea and the heavy sugarcane aroma makes for a delightful experience.
