China's Best Oceania Tea
The best in class from the birthplace of black tea! Our China's Best loose leaf tea combines black keemun and orange pekoe for a rich tea flavor balanced with hints of fruit and a surprisingly sweet, refreshing finish.
What's in our Oceania blends?
- Orange pekoe: Whole, dried leaf flushes from the black tea plant, specifically the leaf bud picked fresh with the two youngest leaves attached. Pekoe is considered the traditional tea of choice.
- Black keemun: Chinese black tea leaves, medium in size and drying in a twist. They have blend of woody and fruity notes, and produce a robust orange color. Another classic staple in tea cultivation, traditionally from the Eastern provinces of China.
- Rose petals: Made from the petals and buds of the rose bush, rose tea creates a light floral and tangy flavor. The tang of the roses combines nicely with the woody notes of the black tea.
- Calendula marigolds: These marigolds are members of the sunflower family and native to Northern Africa and Central Europe, and the leaves and oils have been used in folk medicine for their therapeutic properties. Calendula flowers and leaves have a slightly sweet aroma, balancing out the woody black tea leaves.
