    Alishan Jinxuan 2018

    the oolong with an accent of milk

    In the early 80’s when the tea was first available to the market, tea tasters described Jinxuan oolong as having an accent of milk. The simple remark has sparked waves of imitation products, all involving adding flavouring. This continues until today. Jinxuan maybe one of the more popular cultivars in Taiwan, but it takes mastery to harvest and process it properly for that natural and slight “milk” accents, and all the other finer tea qualities. Tea Hong’s Alishan Jinxuan is just that. Non-blended first flush superbly produced to the same balance as Prof Wu Zhenduo* had originally intended it to be. As the same cleansing, soft taste profile that made it famous in the beginning. Nothing added, purely as we have always like our tea to be.

    King Silver 2010

    Baihao Yinzhen at its best

    If you like Silver Needle for its health benefits, but wish for more taste, King Silver is perhaps the choice. There are a few reasons why this pure leaf shoot white tea has better epicurean appeal: 
    1. Traditional processing — it takes more time, more mastery
    2. Mastery in maturing — not most people in the tea trade know how to mature a white tea like we do
    3. Special cultivar — we have employed a special cultivar that combines the complexity of a Yunnan Daye and the sweetness of Fuding Dabai to have it grown in Zhenghe, the mecca for old style white tea
    4. Top quality pluck — only top quality first flush from our specially appointed garden, no blending. Not only does that give a uniform, pleasing visual appeal, but also the fantastic taste that is possible only with such care and dedication.

    Anji Baipian Supreme 2018

    , , , ,

    The Green Tea that is called White

    If a green tea is judged only by how umami it is, a lower grade than Tea Hong’s Anji Baipian* Supreme 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 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.

    Meishan Paochong

    Winter 2017 Batch

    Originally 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.Connoisseur classCanaryTCM: Cool EnergyStaff pickNet weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

    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. Tea Hong revives the original sweet tasting jewel of green teas in the same revered and enjoyable quality in the cups of the gentiles in both East and West in the good old days, but at a far more democratically accessible price.Connoisseur's classInfusion colorTCM CoolGreat valueNet weight: 60 g (2.1 oz) in Kraft-alu pillow

    Hand-rolled Himalayan Tips:

    Although tea from this part of the world has not been best known for smoothness, there can be exceptions provided that there is the proper knowledge and experience. Together with the work of Nature. Imperial Topaz is such a tea. Hand-rolled and masterfully processed for a soft and round profile yet rich with the distinctive mineral accents representative of the region, the bright orange infusion delivers what is best from the Himalayas coupled with the modesty and gentleness of a Chinese black. Imperial Topaz is not only a gem of Nepali tea, but also an example of what can be achieved when we tea people share and work together across boundaries.Delta classInfusion colorTCM NeutralUSDA certified organicEU certified OrganicNet weight: 50 g (1.8 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

    Organic Golden White Tea

    All classic tastes today had once been novel. In the category of white tea, there is much room for developing a fuller spectrum of fine tastes. Mini Peony is Tea Hong’s answer for a different tasting alternative to the classic White Peonies. Processed from a new cultivar, and grown organically in the scenic mountains in Huangshan, this smaller size version of white peony has all the goodness of genuine white tea, but delivered in the compact, less hairy orchid shape whole leaves. The gold infusion is characterised with its own distinct sweet milky notes as a fine selection in its own rights.Connoisseur's classInfusion colorTCM ColdUSDA Organic CertifiedEU Organic Certified Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSave

A lesser looking tea plant but capable of a deeper and rounder taste profile, such sexually propagated tea bushes still exist today.

    Finest Zhenghe Bai Mudan:

    While White Peony from Fuding tastes more floral, that from the other earliest region, Zhenghe, tastes longer and deeper. The more tedious curing process is marked by the darker colors on the leaves. This is the best and most classical representation from the origin, aka King of White Peony, a favorite by many white tea connoisseurs.Connoisseur classInfusion colorTCM Neutral-coolStaff pickTea Master's ChoiceNet weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSave

Now after years of sweating we have organic versions of some of the most authentic tasting Taiwan teas: Paochong, wulong green, and this trendy wulong black tea. Mi infuses to a sweet, light tasting cup of comfort, a refuge from the daily hectics on your way to realise your own vision.RosewoodUSDA-Organic-Seal  Net weight: 50 g (1.8 oz) in Kraft-alu pack

    Dong Ding Classic:

    The traditional style of baking Taiwan oolong is a vanishing art. That is one reason older connoisseurs are saying tea is not tasting like it used to. Fewer and fewer people are able to master the delicate art except for Yu Wen, our Taiwan farmer. She is dedicated to bringing that heritage back in vogue. Taiwan oolong properly baked is healthier and friendlier to the stomach for everyone after all, and used to be what makes Cold Peak — Dong Ding — the quintessential Taiwan oolong — soft, sweet and with a warm, nectarous aroma. We are glad that we can present you with such quality.Chrysanthemum classGoldTCM: Neutral EnergyStaff pickNet weight: 70 g (2.5 oz) in Kraft-alu pillow

    Winter harvest Taiwan oolongs have always been prized for crispier floral fragrance, as in the case of autumn Minnan Tieguanyins, except that Taiwan ones generally have softer bodies and aromas. While maintaining these characters, Tea Hong’s Eternal Spring excels with an exceptionally green freshness and yet a fine oolong sweetness. A taste profile most friendly for oolong rookies and yet with such unique quality that can complement any serious connoisseur’s collection.Connoisseur's classLemon yellowTCM: Cold EnergyStaff pickGreat valueNet weight: 120 g (4.2 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
