Style: Black

Description:

How does one condense fifteen years of tea – tea blending, tea adventures, tea stories, tea growing and tea reverence into one blend? It sure has made for a little head scratching and then, after some reflections, the simple answer was to look to the roots.

No. 15 was created with history in mind, both tea origin, tea history and also the very recent history of Westholme.

No. 15 takes us back to China as a reminder of how Westholme came to be, rooted in tea history and tradition.

We have created a blend of some of our very favourite Chinese black teas from Yunnan province and from Anhui province resulting in a delightful combination of flavour and fragrance.


Tasting Notes:

A blend of exquisite whole leaf teas from Yunnan and Qimen. The tea steeps to a beautiful rich amber with notes of slightly toasted chestnuts, full of flavour and a delicate hint of astringency. The cup is bright, warm with a subtle reminder of baked peaches. The fragrance lingers pleasantly in the empty cup and asks for yet another steep.

Brewing Instructions: 2-3g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-4 minutes.

Organic

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
