Folklore has it that this tea developed its unique flavour during passage by camel train along the silk road. Giant bundles of tea surrounded evening campfires, absorbing the smoke oozing from the damp logs. Our take on tradition is a blend of whole leaf Chinese and Formosan teas, elevated by a touch of Darjeeling. The infusion is bright, smooth and subtly smoky.
Delicious black or with a splash of milk.
Whole leaf black tea is best enjoyed with freshly drawn water just off the boil.
