Product Details

A dark, fruity tea from Yunnan in Southwest China

Our Flowery Orange Pekoe tea from China's famous tea-growing province of Yunnan has a rich, malty taste which some compare to a classic Assam, distinguished by strong, fruity bass notes and the slightest suggestion of spice and smoke.

'Flowery Orange Pekoe' refers to the young, unbroken style of leaf, scattered with golden buds to give it that molten treacle sweetness. Simply add splash of milk and it becomes a beautifully mellow breakfast brew.

    Black Tea

    This tea takes its name from the camel-drawn caravans which travelled the ancient trade routes through Russia to the tea-tables of Europe.
