Chinese Tea

When it comes to a cuppa, it’s China to which we owe our thanks. Even the most common words for the world’s favourite beverage – ‘cha’ and ‘tea’ – have their origins in China, where, legend has it, Emperor Shennong discovered it close to 5,000 years ago. In our online store, you will discover some of the finest examples of Chinese loose-leaf tea available: delicate white tea; light and fragrant Jasmine Dragon Pearls green tea; aged and earthy Pu-erh; charismatic oolongs; and cult brews such as smoky Tarry Lapsang Souchong black tea. Enjoy the journey!

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TEAS FROM CHINA

About Our Chinese Teas


China is well-known and respected for its long-standing and varied history of tea production, particularly from the Fujian Province. The name of the Camellia sinensis tea plant hints at its homeland – ‘Sino’ meaning ‘of China’. This heritage has given rise to some of the finest tea leaves in the industry, and our selection of luxury Chinese loose-leaf tea reflects that fact, with the inclusion of some of the highest quality and rarest teas available. Browse our collection and explore Chinese tea culture as you learn about these fascinating speciality teas: Lincang Ripe Pu-erh, White Peony and Flowering Tea Bulbs, to name a few.
