Long Jing #43 龙井四十三号: the best known of a series of cultivars developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Tea Research Institute for both lücha and hongcha; number 43 was cloned from the Jiu Keng cultivar but best known for Anji Bai Pian and also, because of its early budding, used to produce Ming Qian Long Jing
Tian Mu Hong Cha
“Heavenly Red Tea” – fresh, aromatic fruit red tea from Tian Mu Mountain processed from the famous Long Jing cultivar # 43.
The tea comes from the same gardens and production as our Gou Qing green tea introduced last year.
Ceratophyllum or Gynostemma is a climbing plant from the pumpkin family, which originated in southern China. Low temperature resistance to -15°C. In winter, the above-ground part disappears, but reappears in spring. It can also be planted in pots. This plant is sometimes called five-leaf ginseng or southern ginseng; it has nothing to do with real ginseng (Panax ginseng).
The aroma of tea is sweet and fruity, floral, citrus and peach aromas. In more and more brewing processes, the color of the infusion changed from soft golden pink to amber. The taste is obviously fruity, sweet and refreshing. The aftertaste is strong honey with a gooseberry hue.
This tea can withstand many brews and is definitely one of the most unique teas in our collection at an affordable price, but it is also of high quality.

Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) - one of the best rock teas (yancha) straight from the cradle of all oolongs - Wu Yi Shan. Teas grow on the region's numerous rocky cliffs, which, thanks to the local climate and stony soil, acquire special features that are later deepened by traditional processing.
Due to its unique properties and taste, Da Hong Pao is often referred to as the 'King of Teas'. The color of the leaves is dark brown, often with a charcoal luster. The taste is balanced, the aroma is strong but still soft and pleasant and aftertaste long and sweet.
