Description: This special creation was made for BOOM + BATTEN restaurant in Victoria, BC. As their house tea, this blend has to keep up with their strong, impactful presence on the local food scene. The result is a bold combination of two strong and classic flavours, combined for a unique steep that appeals to the curious palate. 

Tasting Notes: The musky and slightly sweet, smooth base of a Chinese Keemun black tea is used to anchor a classic Lapsang Suochong and lively Sichuan Peppercorns. The result is a black tea with complex notes in both aroma and flavour - a wonderful balance between sweet pine-smoke and the savoury, slightly tingling citrus quality of sichuan pepper, which builds to a unique and lively linger. 

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 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.
