Very limited time only:We have reserved a small amount of Longjing Spring Equinox to have our old tea master friend to wrap the tea in kraft paper, the old fashioned way. Although the paper material is modernised with lamination for better protection, the look is still what it used to look like when I bought my first authentic Longjing on the shore of West Lake ( Xihu ) in 1980.And the great smell of the dry leaves too. This nostalgic, unique, freshly roasted Longjing olfactory delight. That is why we have not put the batch into cold storage yet. This particular fragrance will be subdued after we do*. So if you’d like to experience that same sensation I had 39 years ago that opened my senses for tea, you have until April 25 to get it before we have to protect its flavour by refrigeration.

Green Snail Spring AromaticThese fragrant little leaves are so fluffy that one may want to make a down pillow out of them for sweet dreams every night. However, they are certainly not the softest tasting green tea. A fine Biluochun like Tea Hong’s does have a smooth body but enough character for optimal stimulation. Yet gentle enough to be one’s company throughout the day, even when you are searching deep inside for that piece of critical article you have to write, as those royals or literati did in old Qing China.

Original Tieguanyin CultivarTo old time aficionados, tieguanyin is not just about floral aroma. They seek yun-wei, which can be roughly translated as “lingering taste of various tones and accents”. For the right yun-wei, we went to the origin of tieguanyin for a fourth generation farm high in altitude. Tea Hong’s Tieguanyin Traditional is produced from a particular patch where only matured shrubs of the thorough-breed cultivar grow and are harvested only once year. This is to ensure maximum amount of taste and salutary substances are stored in the young leaves for subsequent mastery processing for the wonderful lingering taste of various tones and accents. Like a fine old style tieguanyin should be.

The Green Tea that is called WhiteIf a green tea is judged only by how umami it is, a lower grade than Tea Hong’s Anji Baipian* may already top the chart. The grace of this top quality of one of the most sought after name in green teas is not measured only by its savouriness, but its silky smooth and soft body and elegance in its taste character. Perhaps that is why the small county of Anji is never producing enough to satisfy the demand from the growing affluent class in China. That said, it is good to see a small counter trend against the taste of expensive vulgarity in that vast population.

Winter 2017 BatchOriginally labelled as “Floral Aroma Tea”, Paochong is nowadays produced in many parts of Taiwan and China. However, not all to the subtle, sweet and smooth quality that the original is meant to be. We have combed different regions to find one that is almost comparable to prize winning ones at the origin but at less than one-third the price. Meishan is a region in itself that has all fine oolong production conditions as the origin Wenshan, only not as famous. This tea is for those who appreciate the genuine taste of Paochong but prefer to put off the budget for the subtle finesse of the first prize tea till later.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packUSD 10.40 Quickview

Ping Shui Zhu Cha:Back-track 3 centuries to when Qing China was still grand and tea was a respectable drink, zhu cha ( pearl tea ) from Ping Shui — the town of Serene Water — approached the price of gold when auctioned in London. As popularity grew, compromised products took over the market and resulted in those greyish bad taste that is known as “gunpowder” today.

Baxian Supreme:This Phoenix dancong is rare in many ways. It is the best Eight Immortals we have tasted, including award winning ones. Not only is it mild but flavorful like a good Baxian should be, but also gently and yet persistently fragrant. On top of that, it is so softly baked but with enough depth to attain a low acidity for better friendliness to the weaker stomach. Not an easy task for making a bouquet dancong. Master Lin who grows this is a shy and mild person and an old friend.

Caolan Dancong:As a person continues to discover tea, sometimes finding one with subtle and yet complex fineness seems a lot more exciting than one with strong impressions. That is how we feel when we got hold of this. The locals aptly name it “Cao-lan” (Cymbidium goeringii), the rare orchid which ancient Chinese literati had revered for millenniums for its understated beauty and fragrance*. The long, sweet yet subtle taste and aftertaste of this tea echos the sentiments for the civilized persistence for humanity virtues of the classic eras.

Yuqian Huangshan Maofeng:Huangshan Maofeng green tea is a must-have souvenir when one visits Huangshan. However, even if you know the way to real teashops rather than tourist traps, a pack of such quality as Tea Hong's Cuiyu would come at a high price. That is why this pleasant tasting and slightly sweet baked green tea is a most popular item not only for our retail, but also export. To maintain consistent high quality, we employ only harvest before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April. "Yuqian" — before the rain — is the traditional term for this.Net weight: 35 g (1.2 oz) in Kraft-alu packUSD 11.30 Quickview

Biluochun on a budgetIn the realm of green tea, if those from India are too rough and astringent, or Japanese ones too seaweedy, maybe Chinese is the way to go. Tea Hong's Silver Curls is a great value selection to start experiencing the category with. It has the characteristics of the archetypical Chinese green tea — soft, fragrant, slightly sweet and refreshing. In some teashops, the same quality can be labelled as Biluochun or some other expensive names.

Hangzhou Original:This is a more affordable version of the most sought after Chinese green tea. While some people are willing to pay thousands for a small pack of the earliest harvest in Spring, Tea Hong brings you what is authentic but slightly later in season, for similar enjoyment but much less in price.

Hangzhou Original:To acquire really fine Long-jing in rapidly changing China, we had to search away from tourists infested localities, and yet still faithful to the origin of Hangzhou. In Wu’s farm where the underground water is crisp and the air sweet, our Long-jing master realizes the environment is more important than the convenience; there would be no quality without the traditional respect for Nature. Tea Hong’s Long-jing Spring Equinox might well be used by nobles and mandarins in their tea competition when Emperor Qianlong was still young and flamboyant, and crazy about the tea.Net weight: 60 g (2.1 oz) in Kraft-alu packRated 5.00 out of 5USD 37.00 Quickview
