We only use fine, whole leaf Qimen black to create our blend so that the base tea is excellent. The rosebuds are picked fresh and allowed to dry amongst the leaves to release their fragrance completely into the tea. Cleansing, cooling and aids digestion.





These taster bags are a great way to sample a tea without buying a larger pack. Each taster bag has enough tea leaves to brew a large family pot or can be split in half if you want to make an individual mug of tea. Do not forget to reinfuse your tea according to our brewing guide recommendations. This means that each taster bag will provide around 4-10 mugs depending on the tea selected.




To brew large leaf black tea Western style, infuse about 2.5g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 95c water for about 1 and a half minutes. You can reinfuse up to 4 times by adding 60 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

To brew small leaf black tea Gong fu style, infuse about 6g of leaf per 150ml of 95c water for about 10 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 8 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.
