Chinese Tea

Chinese Tea | Imperial Teas

We are becoming increasingly well known for our unrivalled range of famous China teas and have responded to your interest by importing special qualities seldom seen outside of China. These teas are picked on just a few days of the year and yield very small crops. In the past they were given as tributes to the Emperor. Given such a wide choice we understand how difficult it is to pick a tea you might like but if you know which type, dark or Pu Erh, black, green, Oolong, yellow or white you enjoy, we can safely say that all our range will appeal for their quality alone. So in making your decision why not be led by an intriguing name, our descriptions or ultimately by your pocket! As we can only obtain small quantities of the very rare teas, between one and ten kilos, they are available in sample size packets, which also allows inexpensive experimenting.

  1. Yunnan White Gold

    Yunnan White Gold

    We had to request a special manufacture of Yunnan (Dianhong) Gold tea this year, so an already scarce tea has become almost non-existent. This is due to the fact that most of the juicy buds used to produce it are now being used to make the very popular Pu Erh tea. This tea is made up entirely of long, golden buds and is the highest grade available of Yunnan tea. Although satisfyingly strong it is impossible to make this tea full of golden buds bitter, the longer you brew it the richer and smoother it becomes. The most wonderful thing about this tea, made entirely from plump, hairy buds, is that no two cups taste the same. Instead, one is treated to an array of flavours that change almost with the weather! It varies from peppery spiciness to a sweet toffee character in a moment yet always has an exotic perfume. Perfect with or without milk. Black tea perfection! Learn More

  2. Jasmine Iron Goddess Oolong

    Jasmine Iron Goddess Oolong Tea

    A high quality Tie Guan Yin Jade Oolong from Fujian scented with night blooming Jasmine Blossom. A heady mix of sweet, rich fragrance and flavour. Oolong or 'Wu Long' teas are partly oxidised teas, which yield smooth, creamy liquors. Learn More

  3. Sichuan Zao Bai Jian Spring

    Sichuan Zao Bai Jian Spring Black Tea

    This is one of my favourite teas and one of the best black teas I have ever tasted. Even in the dry leaf, it has the wonderful aroma of chocolate covered Turkish Delight, more when infused and the taste reminds me of Bournvita, with its silky blend of real cocoa, malt and rose. The appearance of the fine, golden tipped, tightly twisted leaves is also an indication of the respect this tea has in China's tea market. Learn More

  4. Jasmine Snow Monkey

    Jasmine Snow Monkey White Tea

    This tea is made with high-quality handmade white tea known as White Monkey. Its mellow quality is enhanced by the sweet, fragrant character of jasmine blossom. We requested that some blossoms were left in to add to the lovely appearance of this tea. Learn More

  5. Heart Shaped Hei Cha Dark Tea

    Heart Shaped Hei Cha Dark Tea

    Dark Tea or Hei Cha is a famous tea product of Anhua, in the Hunan Province of China. It shares the same processing of post-fermentation through microbial action as Pu Erh. It is similar in flavour to Pu Erh too. We have chosen to have this tea made into heart shapes to reflect the many alleged health benefits found in drinking this heavy but very mellow charactered tea. One heart should be brewed in 500ml of filtered, boiling water. It is infused for just 20 seconds with the leaves being re-used 5-6 times to extract all the goodness. Listed below are a number of the claims made for its health benefits. Learn More

  6. Huangshan Silver Spring

    Huangshan Silver Spring Green Tea

    This green tea is grown on Yellow Mountain in the Anhui province of China. The leaves have an attractive long green curled shape with silvery tips. Only the most tender tea shoots are picked. This tea is famous for its delicate, sweet taste and fragrant aroma. Its flavour is full and crisp. Learn More

  7. Jin Jun Mei Souchong

    Jin Jun Mei Souchong Black Tea

    This Jin Jun Mei is currently the second most expensive black tea in China, with shops selling the slightly higher grade for prices up to $1600 for 100g. It has soared in both popularity and cost since it was created in 2005 by Mr Jiang Yuan Xun, the general manager of Wu Yi Zheng Shan tea company. This leaves the tea to develop a complex character, with aromas of fruit, flower, honey, caramel and malt with a wisp of smoke. Learn More

  8. 'Captain Tea's' Well-Being Blend

    Captain Tea's Well-Being Blend

    In addition to Fog Island Japanese Sencha and Chinese Pu Erh teas, which are currently being exposed to much ado in the press regarding their alleged benefits to weight loss, I have added my favourite, and I believe healthiest of teas, Gabalong 'Blue' Oolong. With the final addition of our Tea of Life White Tea for good measure, if there is anything in the health aspect of tea, we should have it covered here! The tea flavour is a mellow mix, with the distinctive note of caramel and vanilla of the Gabalong tea in the foreground. The delicate notes of the Sencha, whilst somewhat subdued by the other teas, adds a fresh edge to the cup, with the more earthy tones of the Pu Erh adding weight and body. Learn More

  9. Metabolism Booster Wellbeing Blend

    Metabolism Booster Wellbeing Blend

    A blend combining the three teas, which are currently being exposed to much ado in the press regarding their alleged benefits to weight loss. It is made up of a Chinese Oolong called Da Hong Pao Red Robe, Fog Island Sencha from Japan and Chinese Pu Erh. The tea flavour is dominated by the Red Robe Oolong, with it's distinctive toasty, almost mellow pipe tobacco note and ripe fruit aftertaste. The delicate notes of the Sencha, whilst somewhat subdued by the other teas, adds a fresh edge to the cup, with the more earthy tones of the Pu Erh adding weight and body.
