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. Jin Guanyin Golden Goddess of Mercy Black Tea

    Jin Guanyin Golden Goddess of Mercy Black Tea

    This rare tea treasure is from the fertile gardens in the high mountains of Fujian province. It is a new variety of black tea produced from a new hybrid created to produce a new type of oolong tea. The idea was to combine the buttery, alpine character of Tie Guan Yin with the osmanthus scent of Huang Jin Gui. The tightly twisted, black leaf with fine silvery-gold tips gives a deliciously sweet, smooth, exceptionally flavoured drink with hints of fruit and pepper. It is made entirely by hand from young tips that are withered, twisted, oxidised then dried and shaped before the final sorting is done. Learn More

  2. Jasmine Black Tea

    Jasmine Flavoured Black Tea

    A fine Chinese black tea scented with jasmine blossoms in the same way as the more widely known green tea. The blossoms are layered between black tea at night as they open, a process that is repeated several times. The blossoms are then meticulously removed as with the top grade jasmine green teas. Jasmine has a sweet, almost fruity fragrance but carries some heady, spicy, almost savoury notes too. Learn More

  3. Peach

    Tuo Cha Pu Erh Gam Fei Tea

    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 earthy, mossy, forest-floor Pu Erh flavour that has become so popular in recent years in the West. China has enjoyed it for many centuries! They are sometimes called Bird's Nests due to their appearance. Learn More

  4. 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

  5. Osmanthus Oolong

    Osmanthus Scented China Oolong Tea

    This classic blend, in the tradition of other famous flavoured teas from China, is scented with the sweet-smelling flowers of a native plant, the Osmanthus. It is found growing on the cliffs of Guilin. The base of this tea is a fine Tie Guan Yin Oolong which has a fresh, green and buttery quality that complements the honey, peach-like character of Osmanthus. Learn More

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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
