• Full bodied with a pleasant origin distinct character
• A delicious hint of oak cask pungency
Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is a classic good quality Chinese black tea. The leaf is very well graded displaying uniform leaf size with a little bit of "tip." Tip is the tip of the new shoots and during the manufacturing process these tips turn a gold brown. "Tippy tea" is a leading indicator of exceptional quality, selective grading and usually only available in the first few weeks of the new season (New season teas have the most flavor, rarest and most eagerly sought by tea connoisseurs). Chingwo County is sometimes known as "Long March Tea," in that it is a good quality tea that was reasonably affordable by the proletariat.

Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is made from locally grown Daibaicha tea bushes. These bushes are renown for their stout full flavored, origin distinct taste and wiry leaf appearance. The best way to describe the full flavored taste is to think of a full bodied red wine with a lovely dry pungent or oaky character.

Chingwo County Orange Pekoe is an excellent self-drinking tea, particularly suited for afternoon tea with dainty cucumber sandwiches followed by creamy sweet vanilla cookies. The pungent character of the tea and the delicate repas beg you to consume a second pot of Long March Tea.

Psst.....if the truth be known: this tea will make you feel totally bourgeoisie.

• A winey, juicy, clean cup
• Thick and reddish with a bouquet evoking an orchid character
This Keemun is a particularly fine example of a winey Keemun, very often referred to as the "Bordeaux or Burgundy of Tea." The tea has a thick rich liquor that has an orchid like fragrance, a fragrance that some say can be enhanced with milk. This grade has tightly rolled leaves that promote a deep rich concentrated flavor. In fact, when properly stored, it takes on a deeper winey and mellow character. This is the third highest grade of Keemun that is available (the two top grades are Hoa Ya A and Hoa Ya B), and is only made during March and April growing months after which the leaf and cup quality are not sufficient to meet the Imperial Mao Feng grade.

The name Keemun comes from Qimen county in southern Anhui province, where almost all the mountains are covered with tea bushes. Qimen county produced only green tea until the mid 1870's. Around that time a young man in the civil service lost his job. Despite being totally heartbroken and completely embarrassed by his shame, he remembered what his father told him, "A skill is a better guarantor of a living than precarious officialdom." Following this advice, the young man packed up his courage and his bags to travel to Fujian Province to learn the secrets of black tea manufacturing. Upon his return to Qimen in 1875 he set up three factories to produce black tea. The black tea method was perfectly suited to the tea leaves produced in this warm moist climate with well drained sandy soil. Before long, the superb flavor of Keemuns became very popular around the world. In fact, it is reported that the Queen of England counts upon Imperial Keemun Mao Feng as one of her teas of choice.

Despite its relatively short history (for a Chinese tea!) Keemun became world renown by 1915 and in taste tests conducted by the leading tea companies of the day, was preferred over Darjeeling! 1915 also marked another milestone in Imperial Keemun's storied history, it won gold at the International Exposition in Panama. Even though in recent years tea connoisseurs have taken more to Assams and Ceylon black teas, Imperial Keemun Sacred Garden remains "King of the Black Teas."

• A winey and fruity tea with depth and complexity
Of all the Chinese teas available, Keemun is probably one of the best known. Keemun is sometimes referred to as a China Congou which means "time and labor." Interestingly, the characters in the written Chinese script for time and labor are the same as those used for "kung fu." It is often said that properly produced Keemuns are amongst the finest teas in the world and quite regularly are compared to Burgundy Wines.

Traditionally, Keemuns were known as the classic English Breakfast tea. Perhaps this came about as some have described the taste and aroma of Keemun's as reminiscent of toast hot from the oven.

Keemun is one the best-keeping black teas. Fine specimens will keep for years if stored properly and take on a mellow winey character.

• A tea with a delicate rose character
Tea was reportedly discovered in China around 2737 B.C. by The Emperor Chen Nung when a tea leaf fell into his bowl of hot water. This tradition of tea drinking became a integral part of society and was the preferred beverage for all walks of life; from monks and mandarins to the nomadic tribesmen who traded horses for bricks of tea. The Japanese may have transformed tea drinking into a sacred ceremony, however, the Chinese are credited with initiating the time honored ritual of offering a guest a cup of tea as a sign of hospitality.

Scented teas have been around for a long time and are produced according to ancestral recipes. Before the advent of essential oil extracts one of the easiest scents to duplicate was "rose." The plantations would literally cut the rose blossoms from the plants bordering fields and pathways and sprinkle these into the tea. The result was a delicate but finely flavored tea. Today, the practice remains virtually the same, but essential oils can be used to speed up the scenting process and freshly cut flowers are added to the tea for visual effects. The result is a delightfully attractive leaf accented with rose petals combined with the refreshing cleansing flavor of roses. The next time a guest drops by, why not offer a truly special cup of hospitality accented with the scent and petals of roses.

• Only produced during March and April when the mountain air is moist and cool
It is believed throughout the tea world that the Chinese province of Yunnan, which borders Laos, Vietnam, Burma, and Tibet, is the birthplace of the world's first tea plantations. However, in direct contrast to the soothing qualities of a cup of freshly brewed tea, the Yunnan tea plantations, if legend is to be believed, were the by-product of a terrible war.

According to ancient Chinese military texts, during the ancient period of the Chinese three kingdoms, (220-265 AD), a marauding army led by a General Kong Ming, (at the time one of the most feared men in China), conquered Yunnan province after invading it from nearby Hunan. Kong Ming, besides being a brilliant military strategist, was also a man of science, and specialized in botany. After conquering the province he conducted a thorough survey of its topography and biology and deemed it to be perfect for the cultivation of tea. Subsequently, the general ordered 1000 of his men to plant tea seedlings they had brought with them from Hunan and plant them throughout the highlands of Yunnan.

Whether or not the legend of Kong Ming is to be believed, the environment and altitude of Yunnan province do create an absolutely perfect environment for growing tea. The tea there is grown at very high elevations ranging from 4500-6000 feet above sea level. Interestingly, it is the height that gives the province its name; Yunnan translates into English as "South cloud." The altitude, combined with the warmth and humidity of the highlands creates a natural greenhouse that Yunnan tea plants thrive in. Ying Ming Yunnan, like most Yunnan teas is known by its full-bodied and slightly sweet flavor. Brew a cup of this fabulous tea yourself and the next time you hear the song "war, war, what is good for?" at least you'll know that it was good for at least one thing.

• Full bodied with a heady bouquet
• Malty with hints of a "jammy" flavor
Golden Heaven is one of most stylish teas that is commercially available. Stylish means very visually appealing typified by tippy, neat, wiry and well made leaves. This tea is characterized by its fine shape (black lustre and distinctive golden yellow buds), varnished color, fragrant aroma, malty taste and top quality. It is a distinctive specialty tea, so much so that when it was first exported to London it commanded a title as a "special species of tea." When steeped, the essential elements of the leaf infuse giving a bright reddish liquor with a brisk and lingering fragrant aroma with toasty lovely notes.

Yunnan is in an ideal location to grow tea. This is characterized by:
  • annual average temperature of 15 degrees celsius
  • anual accumulated precipitation of 45 inches
  • relative humidity of 75% during the tea gowing period
  • an average soil pH value of 4.5 - 6.5
  • mean altitude of 4000 - 6500 feet above sea level
This tea is one of the top qualities available from Yunnan Province. It is only made during the last two weeks of March and the first two weeks of April, when the new season growth flushes in a particular manner that gives a high percentage of golden tip. Drink this tea and you pamper yourself to one of the world's great teas.

• Grown high in the Wuyi mountains
• A flavory full bodied tea with an exotic character
Golden Monkey is sometimes referred to by the grower (because this tea is so good) as King of Panyong Congou. After a painstakingly labor intensive production process, this tea is hand sorted to ensure a beautiful leaf appearance. The leaves are curly, wiry and well twisted with a high percentage of tip evident. "Tip" is the tip of the new shoots and during the manufacturing process these tips turn a gold brown. "Tippy tea" is a leading indicator of exceptional quality, highly selective grading and usually only available in the first few weeks of the new season (New season teas have the most flavor, rarest and most eagerly sought by tea connoisseurs).

Panyong Congou Teas are mainly produced in the mountainous region of Fu'an County and Shounin County. The finished teas are made from a local variety of tea bush that is noted for its rich aroma, sweet taste, golden color and well twisted tippy leaf.

In earlier times, Golden Monkey was the tea of saipans and local overlords. They claimed that the secret for this tea was that it had to be plucked by the golden monkey which centuries ago inhabited the forests of Fujian Province. This special tea was very rare and the Taipans demanded every ounce of tea. Today, the plucking process has changed somewhat but it is fascinating to know the tradition behind this marvelous tea.

• A leafy black tea infused with the flavor of lichee fruit
• A delightful naturally scented tea
Tea was reportedly discovered in China around 2737 B.C. by The Emperor Chen Nung when a tea leaf fell into his bowl of hot water. This tradition of tea drinking became an integral part of society and was the preferred beverage for all walks of life; from monks and mandarins to the nomadic tribesmen who traded horses for bricks of tea.

Scented teas have been around for a long time and are produced according to ancestral recipes. Before the advent of essential oil extracts one of the easiest scents to duplicate was Lichee - a fruit that plays an important part in Chinese life. The plantations would squeeze Lichee fruits plucked from the trees which grew in the area. The result was a delicate and finely flavored tea. Today the practice remains virtually the same, but essential oils are purchased in huge drums and used to scent the tea to meet the high volume demands from the global market. The next time a guest drops by, why not offer a truly special cup of hospitality.

• Lovely burgundy depth with light hints of an oak cask
Of all the China black teas available Keemun Panda #1 is probably one of the best known. Keemun is one of the congou-type teas, meaning it requires a great deal of gongfu, (disciplined skill) to make into fine taut strips without breaking the leaves. Interestingly the characters in the written Chinese script for time and labor are the same as those used for "kung fu." It is often said that a properly produced Keemun such as Panda #1 is on of the finest teas in the world with a complex aromatic and penetrating character often compared to burgundy wines. Traditionally, keemuns were used in English Breakfast tea.

In the early 1800's, tea was such the rage in England there was a danger that the British treasury would be drained because all the silver was being used to pay the Chinese for tea. The Chinese did not need textiles, one of Britain's main exports, so what to do? India and Burma produced significant quantities for trade and in due course China became a major market. The economic circle that evolved was as follows: Opium from India was sent to the British merchants stationed in Canton, China. The Chinese paid for this in silver and the merchants received credits against debts in England. This silver was then used to pay the Chinese for their tea. This practice led to wars between England and China - called The Opium Wars. The last war was won by the British in 1860 which led to opium being a legal commodity in China until 1908 when it was finally outlawed.

Keemun black tea was only produced after 1875, against the grain of the Chinese practice of producing green teas. The English palate was finely attuned to fine black tea and with virtually unrestricted trade with opium and tea, Keemun rapidly became an English staple, notwithstanding that keemuns were particularly flavorful and full bodied. This interest in keemun also came about as some describe the taste and aroma of Keemun's as reminiscent of toast hot from the oven, another British tradition. Keemun is one the best-keeping black teas. Fine specimens will keep for years if stored properly and take on a mellow winey character.
