Each year, after searching and tasting many rare and unique teas, we come out with a special collection of rare finds that we procure in small amounts for our Exceptionally Rare Tea Sampler. These are some of the best and most unique teas that we have come across and we are thrilled to be able to put them all together in one intriguing sampler. The sampler box itself is modeled after an attractive book containing 6 reusable metal tea tins. Open the book and discover the knowledge of interesting flavors, twisted leaves, attractive colors, and ancient tea history. This collection of extraordinary teas is a great gift for yourself or a friend/loved one who is at the connoisseur level or just interested in high quality loose leaf tea. Each sampler contains a tasting card that describes the tea and where it comes from, along with tasting notes.
The gift box includes 25-45g (enough tea to make 12-20 cups) of each of the following 6 loose leaf teas:
Japanese Kukicha: traditional sweet green tea comprised of leaves and stems
Taitung Supreme: dark and moody rolled leaf oolong with sweet flavor notes
Liza Hill Darjeeling Oolong: unique oolong from Darjeeling; sweet honey and fruit notes
Jun Chiyabari Hand-rolled: small batch high grown Nepalese black tea with large twisty leaves
Honey Black Formosa: Taiwanese black tea with full body and rich, honey notes
Okayti Treasure Gold Darjeeling: exquisite Darjeeling produced like Chinese gold-tips black tea; a must try!
