Perfect Any Time of Day

This tea has depth and character, yet it’s also very smooth and balanced. I love it. Bought a sample size and will get the full size.

If there were a Nobel prize for tea

this tea would win it. Remarkable hints of chocolate with other complex flavors behind it. I would love to know how the tea cultivator accomplishes this. There is nothing else like it.

Black Peony Reserve

I tend to buy green or white teas, but I thought this tea was outstanding. I was shocked by how many steepings I was able to get out of a generous spoonful. Of course, this is a much more potent tea than a green or white tea. Thank you for all of your great tea!

Ingredients

Full leaf black tea from China

Blend Numerology

Reserve No. 105: The 5th release in our Reserve Series.

Preparation

For Western brewing, this tea can be brewed for single infusions using 2.6 grams of tea per 8 ounces of 195 degree water and steeped for five minutes.

For gaiwan brewing, place 7 grams of tea leaves into 150 ml (5 ounce) gaiwan. Bring spring or freshy drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process at least 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion. Learn more about gaiwan service here

Guizhou Province

A mountainous province in southwest China, Guizhou is home to Asia’s longest cave (Shuanghe), which stretches more than 148 miles long, and the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope with a diameter the size of 30 football fields. In addition to being one of China’s important green tea producing regions, it is also home to Moutai, considered to be China’s national liquor, a colorless baijiu distilled from fermented sorghum.
