Positive and Informative. Enjoy learning about the company, mission, teas and infusion process. Also learning about the farmers and effort to make them sustainable and organic. Enjoyment of my tea is heightened not only by the care of this company put into it but also knowing that I am helping farmers sustain tea farming through my ongoing purchases.

Extraordinary Oolong + Port Tea

Aromas of old old rum or sherry with sultanas. Also hints of sticky tannins attached to the wall of the barrel. Notes also of Pedro Ximenez wine. Some hints of wild berries, tangy tamarind or dried apricots, in aftertaste. A delicious tea which brings back memories of long after-dinner meals and of many travels

Addictive

I was sent a sample of Pipacha Oolong, and was so glad to have a chance to try it. It is utterly delicious, and I have been buying it ever since. The taste is both buttery and grassy I would say, with just a hint of a floral note, mellow yet with a lot of depth. Rare Tea oolongs are by far the best I have ever tried.

Beyond Rare

This tea is a truly complex enigma. How can it taste rich and light? Incredibly warming, with cocoa and cigar box flavours on the first brew, underpinned by a deep, red fruit resonance. Further brews reveal the Oolong's **** bright, green vegetal natural characteristics which, in combination with the port barrel aged notes give a hint of rhubarb. Sublime, unique and heartwarming.
