silk road sampler

A wonderful introduction to the wide range of Chinese black teas. Each sample makes about 8-10 cups of tea. This set includes (though subject to infrequent change):

pu erh hazelberry - Pu Erh with rich hazelnut and playful strawberry with a hint of cream.
yunnan jig - Rich and savory flavor, earthy, spicy and soft, smooth cocoa mouthfeel and finish.
yunnan noir - Hand-rolled black tea from Yunnan, China, with leaves curled into a 'black snail' shape. Sweet aroma, hints of honey and spice. Savory and winey on the palate, smooth fruity astringency, cinnamon bark and nutmeg finish. Very textured cup of tea.
english breakfast - Slightly smoky flavor and balanced astringency, with a honeyed aroma.

sampler set contains

pu erh hazelberry - The earthy smoothness of Pu Erh creates a warm foundation for the rich flavor of hazelnut while playful, tangy-sweet strawberries peek through the nutty opulence. A hint of cream adds a soft, dreamy note to the blend.
yunnan jig - Yunnan Jig is a black tea from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Yunnan black tea is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips, and savory cocoa and black pepper flavors. It is a very forgiving tea; will not taste bitter when over-steeped. Our Yunnan Jig black tea has a sweet, almost creamy aroma. Rich and savory flavor, with a slight cocoa powder finish. Earthy and spicy and soft, smooth mouthfeel and finish. Classic Yunnan.
yunnan noir - Yunnan Noir is a black tea from the Yunnan province of China, the birthplace of tea itself. Much of the tea in this southern province is a large leaf variety. Mountains veiled in mist, with clean water and rich soil form ideal growing conditions and contribute to the unique flavor. Our Yunnan Noir is a hand-rolled tea, with leaves tightly curled into a 'black snail' shape. The aroma is sweet with hints of honey and spice. Savory and winey on the palate, with smooth, deep fruity astringency, tremendous depth of flavor, cinnamon bark and nutmeg in the finish. Terrifically textured cup of tea.
english breakfast - English Breakfast is a full-bodied black tea blend that goes well with a traditional English breakfast. The original cup was made with black Keemun tea from Anhui province in China. Across many generations, plenty of different interpretations of this famous blend have been made. Our English Breakfast stays close to the classic. Made from top quality black Keemun tea, prized for its rich, slightly smoky flavor and perfectly 'on point' astringency. Balanced, very honeyed aroma. May be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk. This fine example of English Breakfast remains one of Adagio's most popular varieties.
