• These Bai Mu Dan white tea cakes are from Zheng He in Fujian Province. The packaging is marked as Fuding because in China, Fuding teas can command a higher price - slightly dodgy but we know for certain that these come from Zheng He.
• They are made from Da Bai cultivar
• The best way to prepare this tea is in Gong Fu style
• The infusion is earthy but with a really nice rose floral flavour.
• We only have a very small number of these so when they are gone we won't be getting any more of the 2009
• We are constantly changing our range of limited edition teas so make sure you check back with us regularly to see what new teas we have

• Earl Grey tea was named after Charles Grey, the second earl in his line. He was Prime Minister to King William IV in the early 19th century. It is said that the Earl was given the recipe by a Chinese mandarin with whom he was friends, and whose life he had saved.
• Earl Grey Tea gets its flavours from the oil, which is extracted from the rind of the small acidic Bergamot orange. The Bergamot tree can be found in Calabria in the south of Italy. This is where the majority of the world's bergamot oil comes from
• Different versions of Earl Grey exist depending on what type of base tea is used and what type of bergamot oil is used. Our Earl Grey Tea is made using a Chinese Black Tea base, which is closer to what Earl Grey would have originally tasted like.
• Made from the finest Chinese black tea and natural flavourings and hand-crafted by us in Edinburgh.
• Earl Grey can be enjoyed black, with a slice of lemon or with milk.
• Our Earl Grey Tea is packed by hand in Edinburgh using infinitely recyclable aluminium caddies with a plastic free inner or resealable stand-up pouches

Finest Keemun Mao Feng is an artisanal black tea handmade in small quantities. 'Keemun' refers to Qimen county in China's Anhui Province, while 'Mao Feng' describes the fine strips the tea has been crafted into, which requires a great deal of skill. Qimen produced only green tea until the 1880s, when a young official lost his job and was disgraced. His father had advised him that it was a better guarantee of success to have a skill to make a living than to hold a position of authority. He traveled to Fujian to learn how to make black tea and on his return set up three factories to manufacture black tea from the same leaves his competitors were making green tea from.
