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.

    Yunnan Mini Green Tuo Cha Green Tea

  3. Imperial Gold Pu Erh Gam Fei Tea

    Imperial Gold Pu Erh Gam Fei Tea

    This loose leaf variety of Pu Erh has a wonderfully earthy, mossy aroma with hints of firewood, minerals and a touch of camphor. It has the typically smooth, almost leather-like flavour and deep red colour you would expect of a 'ripe' or 'Shou' post-fermented tea. Pu Erh Gam Fei Cha, known also as 'dark' and 'red' tea in China has recently gained a reputation as a slimming tea thanks to Victoria Beckham! Also known as Super Gam Fei Cha. Learn More

  4. Yunnan Imperial

    Yunnan Imperial

    This is a remarkably fine tea for such a small amout of money. It is thick liquored but will not become bitter, even if brewed for ten or more minutes. Its leaf appearance this year is much larger than usual because of weather conditions, meaning it needs a lengthy infusion time to yield all the flavour locked up in them. In the cup it is delicious, with all the typical Yunnan characteristics evident, such as sweet pepperiness and caramel. It is a splendid breakfast tea on its own and is also useful in a blend, adding great weight and smoothness.

  5. Fujian Green Peony Green Tea

    Fujian Green Peony Green Tea

    This is a delicate green tea grown in Fujian, which is made from tender, spring tea buds. It has the same natural sweetness as Yin Zhen Silver Needle white tea but with a darker infusion and bolder, more complex aroma. I love the invigorating feeling it generates after drinking it. This special green tea is grown in the high mountains of Zhen He. Learn More

  6. Keemun Naturally Decaffeinated Black Tea

    Keemun Naturally Decaffeinated Black Tea

    Decaffeinated using the safe method of CO2, which also leaves more of the flavour quality in the leaf. Very acceptable on its own but my tip is to add just a few leaves of a very high-quality tea to the mix, this improves the flavour significantly whilst adding little to the caffeine levels. Made with a good quality Keemun large leaf it has a mild, sweetish flavour with hints of malt and fruit. It has the famed Keemun orchid aroma. Learn More

  7. Fuchow Snow Buds

    Fuchow Snow Buds

    A perfect plucking and processing guarantees a stunning looking leaf and sweet, clean infusion. Like White Monkey this is grown on the 'Big White' strain of tea bush in the high mountains of Fujian. It is mellow with a pronounced aroma and flavour of chestnuts. Learn More

  8. Fujian Black Rock Xi Xuan Black Tea

    Fujian Black Rock Xi Xuan Black Tea

    This black tea is a relative newcomer to the roster and is produced on an ‘oolong’ cultivar, meaning that it is a tea of great complexity, is strongly aromatic and very light in body. Whilst it does not produce dark liquor it is delicious taken with milk as well as black. The creaminess of milk combines with the naturally occurring flavour of honey and caramel that this tea possesses. Learn More

  9. Earl Grey Tea of Life White Tea

    Earl Grey Tea of Life White Tea

    The most traditional blend of light, clean tasting white tea and the best bergamot. Tea of Life's wild appearance and many colours are due to the simple, sun drying process it undergoes. It makes it a really difficult tea to flavour and pack! Learn More
