Become a connoisseur of fine teas with our luxury sample collection! Our Lux Tea Sampler Set features 5 rare and uniquely processed teas from China and India – the Arya Pearl, Milk Oolong, Silver Needles, En Shi Jade Dew & Golden Needle Yunnan.
White teas from Darjeeling are relatively rare in any given year. This year's Arya Pearl First Flush Organic White Darjeeling is the first to have arrived for sale in the U.S. and we think it's the best white tea of the region's limited crop for 2017. We are the only purveyor in the United States to offer this rare extraordinary first flush tea - but our allotment is very limited. Plucked by hand in March 2017, it received the highest rating: SFTGFOP1
This exquisite oolong is a high-elevation variation on Chinese Tie Guan Yin ("Iron Goddess of Mercy") that was hand-processed with six unique methods to create a one-of-a-kind flavor. It is made in small batches and is extremely limited. The beautiful leaves are blue-green, tightly rolled and lightly oxidized, but their appearance gives no indication of the flavors they generate. Despite the fact that the leaves contain no actual milk, their aroma is similar to the milky sweetness of Chinese milk candies (like White Rabbit).
A spectacular hand crafted plucking available in very limited quantity. Our organic White-Tipped Silver Needle (also known as "Bai Hao Yin Zhen") is the pinnacle of white tea, as well as a personal favorite of nearly the entire American Tea Room staff, and one of our most popular teas. It is comprised entirely of needle-shaped green buds that are topped with tufts of silver down. The production of these delicate buds requires the utmost care, attention and skill, and the rewards of this labor are evident in the singular aroma and flavor they offer. The flavor is earthy yet transcendent, with sweet notes of ripe grapes, honeydew and flowers, and forest tones of fallen old-growth trees, loam and dry leaves.
En Shi Jade Dew
This very rare, extraordinary tea has a long history in Hubei, China and is thought to be a precursor to Japanese sencha teas, due to a light steaming and hand rolling on heated tables that the leaves undergo to keep them green. This Pre-Ming tea from the Xuan En region, is a descendant from the original "Jade Dew" and is sometimes called "Lu Zhen" or Green Needles, referring to the propensity of buds. First, observe the intense sweetness of the aroma. It's fresh and earthy, with a light chocolatey note. When brewed, it has a distinct winter melon note. The liquor is velvety and savory sweet, with a vegetal, creamy finish, like baked zucchini. Upon second a steeping, you notice a hint of tarragon. Truly a heritage tea for the tea connoisseur.
Golden Needle Yunnan
Our organic Golden Yunnan is an extraordinary tea produced in the famed tea-producing region of Yunnan, China, placing it high in the ranks of prized teas worldwide. It's well-oxidized, espresso-dark leaves are flecked with shimmering golden-blond buds and imbued with a sweet, earthy aroma. Its liquor is a rich, dark brown with copper-rust undertones and a sweet, delicate aroma. The flavor is incredibly smooth, with rounded flavors of Tupelo honey and cured tobacco. Sip and savor Golden Yunnan's full-bodied richness. Enjoy with milk for a richer, earthier Chinese milk tea, or pair with dim sum, smoke-cured fish, and ginger candies.
Give these teas a try to discover what sets them above the rest!
