Black Teas
China/Formosa - Black

China/Formosa - Black

Green teas are the norm in China, much more easily found than black (red) teas. There are, however, some truly great Chinese black teas, much sought after by enthusiasts. Notable are the Keemuns, the Yunnans and the Lapsang Souchongs.

We are now packaging the majority of our teas in black matte finish stand-up pouches. The matte finish outer layer gives them a distinctive old world look. Sizes available are 50g (new), 100g, 250g and 500g. Orders of 1kg quantities are either made up of two 500g pouches or with the suppliers original 1kg packaging.
