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.

  2. Jin Jun Mei Souchong Black Tea

    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

  3. '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

  4. 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.

  5. Yunnan Black Gold Black Tea

    Yunnan Black Gold Black Tea

    This tea's appearance, long golden buds in a blend shot through with dark, wiry leaves is beautiful but it is in the cup that this tea really shines. It is made by a tea master with the focus being on maximising the complexity of flavour. As well as all the usual spicy, peppery, subtle earthy notes and a sweetness in the finish, this batch has a very clear note of caramel that we love, with a warm honey flavour too. As you can tell, one of our favourite teas of the year. Learn More

  6. 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

  7. Yong Xi Jade Fire Hou Qing Green Tea

    Yong Xi Jade Fire Hou Qing Green Tea

    Huo Qing tea was first produced in Yong Xi village in the Anhui province, home to many famous teas. Its dark, glossy leaves with an edge of yellow rolled into little snail-shaped pellets unfurl slowly as they infuse. It is called Jade Fire as the tea has been fired over charcoal. The distinctively rich and smooth floral flavour presents a pleasant balance of astringency and sweetness with a long and refreshing aftertaste. As it has been fired by charcoal during the process, it has a unique light sweet smokiness in the aroma. The rolling process, similar to Gunpowder has been carried out the same way for centuries.

  8. Jasmine Royal Pu Erh

    Royal Jasmine Pu Erh Gam Fei Tea

    This is a high grade of cooked loose leaf Pu Erh Gam Fei Cha from 2010, handmade entirely from young shoots and scented with jasmine blossom. It is perfect for jasmine and Pu Erh tea fans alike but is also an opportunity for a gentle introduction to the unique flavour of Gam Fei Cha for novices. Learn More

  9. 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
