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. 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

  2. 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

  3. Fuchow Golden Needle Black Tea

    Fuchow Golden Needle Black Tea

    An unusual flat, smooth leaf in the style of Long Jing green tea, that is worked by hand in a wok. It grows on the 'big leaf' tea tree, in common with our Tea of Life, in the Fujian Province. A rich tasting, fruity liquor with a lingering aroma of chocolate and fresh raspberries. Learn More

  4. Fuchow Monkey King Black Tea

    Fuchow Monkey King Black Tea

    This is the best grade of the black teas called Fuchow, hence the name 'Monkey King'. You can tell from its appearance with the abundant tips and golden hairs that it will be a rich, smooth tea with a complex character. It is predominantly malty in character with notes of cocoa and according to some of our customers a hint of ginger. Extremely exclusive and a current Imperial favourite. Learn More

  5. 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

    Magic Dragon Pearls Black Tea

    The leaves used to make Magic Dragon Pearls are from the highest-grade spring teas. The leaves are hand picked and hand rolled and made from the Huacha varietal. The liquor is smooth, rich and naturally sweet with subtle chocolate and raisin notes.. Learn More

  7. 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
