Classic Laoshan Black

Laoshan is a small village near the sea in northeast China. Laoshan black teas are usually small and tippy, lacking the white pekoe-style hairs that give black teas their golden color. This Classic Laoshan Black, grown under the shadow of a sacred mountain, is very smooth and viscous with a robust flavor that has a distinct dark chocolate bite. One of Tea Runners’ most popular black teas.

2020 harvest.

Ingredients: Black tea.
Origin: Shandong, China
Caffeine: MED-HIGH

Dragon Claw Oolong

Given its name because of the claw-like unfurling of its leaves once it hits water, this rich and malty oolong continues to unfold its surprises as it steeps.

Golden in hue with notes of sweet and tart apricot, it deepens to a flavorful and savory finish much like a black tea with a delicious toasted nuttiness.

We're huge fans of oolongs in general, but this one is just spectacular.

Summer 2020 harvest.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.
Origin: Maipokhari, Ilam region, Nepal

Anhui Maojian


This competition grade maojian is
a multiple award-winner.

This lovely green tea from the Anhui province in China is not only pleasant to look at-- its young leaves are touched with mao jian or "downy tips"-- but it also brews to a lively and vibrant piquancy.

We love the fresh green grass scent and the slightly sweet umami finish in its taste, a welcome combination that makes this green one to savor.

Ingredients: Green tea.
Origin: Anhui province, China
Caffeine: MED

Nepali Breakfast

This breakfast tea is a truly unique and exotic way to start the day. Steeping to a deep ruby red hue due to the addition of CTC leaves, it also sings with the bright and complex flavors of orthodox tea.

What really makes it a standout is its gorgeous layer of masala spice mix, leaving the palate awakened with notes of cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper.

Try it with some warm milk, or as a sweet treat, a touch of sugar.

Origin: Panchthar, Phidim, Nepal

Maghreb Mint

Take a trip to North Africa with this worldly and spicy tea, an exotic and intoxicating blend of roasted green tea, peppermint, ginger, and cardamom. The warm nutty notes are pleasantly offset with aromatic clove and woody fennel, creating a unique and lively, unforgettable cup.

Origin: India, China, and Sri Lanka

London Breakfast

The kickstart to your day you’ve been waiting for, this hefty but elegant black tea is an expertly crafted blend of Assam, Keemun Black, and Sri Lankan black tea leaves.

Vibrant like a traditional Assam, this modern tea swirls with an earthy depth and a well-rounded and smooth finish.

Try it with some milk for a traditional cup, but its silky enough to enjoy on its own.
