Himalayan Hand-rolled Tips (organic)$9.00–$83.00
beTeas is proud to offer organic Himalayan Tips from the renowned Jun Chiyabari Estate in eastern Nepal. These elegantly curled tips are harvested in autumn and carefully hand rolled, which is extremely labour intensive. This stunning leaf, with its blend of black and green tips, provides a smooth, mild and slightly fruity infusion with flowery notes that is reminiscent of teas from nearby Darjeeling.
Houjicha Roasted Green Tea$9.00–$70.00
Does this look like green tea to you? It is! Houjicha is a specially roasted green tea with a toasty sweetness and a nice fresh aroma. Roasting at low temperature transforms its colour to a reddish-brown. You may still detect umami undertones of steamed japanese green tea, but re-invented with new nutty, earthy and toasty flavours with hints of caramel or even a slight cinnamon note.
Keemun Panda #1 (organic)$6.75–$12.25
Chinese Keemun (a.k.a. Qimen) is referred to as the ‘burgundy’ of black teas due to its bright reddish infusion and winey and fruity characteristics, often compared to burgundy wines. This exceptional grade, Keemun Panda #1, is one of the best known, and one of the most celebrated.
Kyulmyung (Cassia Seeds)$10.00–$17.00
These deceiving seeds brew an infusion akin to the colour of red wine, rendering a mild smokey cup with warm notes of roasted coffee and bittersweet dark chocolate. Some detect a hint of beer with a lemony linger on the tongue. Steep your portion of these seeds all day 9-10 times – an exceptional value. This infusion is often enjoyed by coffee-lovers.
Mineral Rock Wuyi Mountain Oolong$12.00–$98.00
This traditional long oxidized Wuyi oolong exhibits the classic dark curly tea leaves and has a smooth, rich body with a roasted aroma and sweet finish. Rich mineral character, co-mingled with a hint of fruity fragrance, and a final finish of toasted bread.
Red Heart Goddess (Premium Tieguanyin) (organic)$23.00–$45.00
We’re delighted to offer this exceptional traditional “Iron Goddess of Mercy” oolong, grown from the region’s most desirable “red heart” cultivar. Unlike it’s newer tieguanyin counterparts, this traditional style tieguanyin boasts a ‘frog leg’ leaf shape rather than semi-balled, is longer oxidized and intentionally roasted unlike its newer style Goddess counterparts. The result is more intensely floral aromas and even slightly nutty experience. This oolong is exceptionally manufactured and can be enjoyed in many, short infusions, making it a beautiful value as well as the one of the best oolongs you’ll ever try.
Toasted Mate (organic)$6.50–$11.50
Our toasted Brazillian Mate is roasted using 1st grade cut, certified organic leaf. The result is a pleasant medium-bodied roasted brew that is very reminiscent of roasted coffee. Toasted Mate may therefore be an excellent tea choice for those wanting to decrease their coffee consumption in exchange for a healthier herbal and without having to do without the caffeine – or maybe even just to switch things up at bit!
Wuyi (Shui Xian) Oolong (organic)$9.00–$15.00
This organic Wuyi oolong has a smooth, rich body with a classic roasted aroma and sweet finish, accented by notes of raisin sugar, honeysuckle and roasted barley. Some say it exudes notes of dark chocolate!
