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. Citrus Tea of Life

    Cola Tea of Life White Tea

    This special white tea, grown in the high mountains of Zhen He, is our most popular variety. It comes from the heart of the very small harvest. It first came to our attention over 20 years ago when research published in Germany claimed it to have an energising, revitalising effect. Our research in the field since then would seem to back this up! White tea is of course now widely renowned for its very high levels of antioxidants. The cola flavour is derived from a complex list of ingredients including neroli, lime, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, coriander to name a few. This blend is zesty yet perfumed. Containing very little tannin or caffeine it can be brewed for a very long time without losing its delightful flavour. Learn More

  2. Peach

    Pu Erh Mini Tuo Cha

    These little compressed cakes are an easy way to make Pu Erh. Pressed into little moulds and left to ripen for over a year, they have the typical Pu Erh flavour that has become so popular in recent years in the West. China has enjoyed it for many centuries!

  3. Jasmine Iron Goddess Oolong

    Jasmine Iron Goddess Oolong

    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

  4. Sichuan Zao Bai Jian Spring

    Sichuan Zao Bai Jian Spring

    This is my favourite and one of the best black Chinese 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

  5. Jasmine Snow Monkey

    Jasmine Snow Monkey

    This tea is made with high quality hand made 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.

  6. 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 300ml 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

  7. Huangshan Silver Spring

    Huangshan Silver Spring

    This green tea is grown 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 flavor is full and crisp. It makes it a great choice for everyday drinking.

  8. Jin Jun Mei Souchong

    Jin Jun Mei Souchong

    This Jin Jun Mei is currently the second most expensive black tea in China, with shops selling the 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. Whilst accompanying some guests on a visit to the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, famous for Oolong teas, some wild tea bushes were discovered growing at over 1800 metres altitude in the Wuyi Nature Reserve. This leaves the tea to develop a complex character, with aromas of fruit, flower and honey and malt.

  9. '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
