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. Osmanthus Flavoured Black Tea

    Osmanthus Flavoured Black Tea

    The high quality, malty, golden-tipped black tea that forms the base of this blend is delicious on its own but the sweet, fruity fragrance that the Osmanthus pollen brings makes for a nectar-like drink. Its satisfying creamy flavour slowly seduces you into craving it all the time. Learn More

  2. Tuo Cha Pu Erh Gam Fei Tea

    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

    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. 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

  7. Huangshan Silver Spring Green Tea

    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

  8. 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

  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
