Black tea (China)

The unique character of the Baiye #1 tea bush cultivar develops into a rosy-amber brew with a sweet aroma reminiscent of malt, honey and molasses. Longer infusions deepen the flavor into the darker and fruitier register, but Anji Black remains uncharacteristically delicate for a black tea, thanks to the high aminoacid’s content. Anji Black is harvested about the same time as its sister green tea Anji White Baicha, plucked as one bud with two young leaves. Both come from the exact same Baiye #1 cultivar tea bushes. The difference lies entirely in the processing techniques that turn the tea either into a green or a black. As an unconventional high-end black tea, Anji Black is something truly unique.

Perfect with sweet and pastries, créme caramel or apple pie
