Description

This is the first time a black tea has been compressed in Bing Cha form (tea cake). This fine crop, comprising leaves and buds, was harvested in the spring of 2019. The compression of leaves is more typically reserved for dark teas, so it is rare to find Hong Cha teas (black teas) that have been compressed.

The tea is grown 1300 metres above sea level in the Ailao Mountains, located in the province of Yunnan. It is made from Da Ye tea plants.

A rare cake that is an opportunity to rediscover black tea and its evolution over time: the delicate compression of the leaves preserves their aroma, for optimal and long-lasting preservation of the tea.

This sweet Grand Cru, with its powdered texture, develops gourmet notes that are both honeyed and fruity, with hints of leather and polished wood.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

What better way to discover compressed teas than to follow this rituel with the help of this fine black tea: unwrap the paper, break off a few leaves and infuse them one or several times in a Gaiwan.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
