When it comes to fashion, everyone has their favourite go-to basic tee. When it comes to tea, we’ve got our own list of tried and trues – classic blends that will never go out of style.
Here are the top 5 traditional teas we can’t live without. Shop them here.
SMOOTH, SWEET AND DELICATE
Hailing from Fujian Province, this incredibly delicate white tea was once reserved for Chinese emperors and nobles. It’s as close to a living tea plant as you can get, which means it’s super high in skin-loving antioxidants.
RICH, MALTY, NATURALLY SWEET
Your search for the perfect breakfast tea ends here. This sweet, full-bodied blend combines the rich taste of Assam and Ceylon tea – great on its own or with a touch of milk or lemon. The perfect morning pick-me-up.
FRESH, VEGETAL, HINT OF SEAWEED
Sencha is arguably Japan’s most popular drink and it’s not hard to see why. This steamed Japanese tea tastes rich, refreshing and crisp, and it packs a delicate punch of energy. We’ve sourced ours from Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan, known for its excellent senchas.
SMOOTH, CREAMY, SUBTLE HINT OF ORCHID
It’s said this rare oolong came about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears, which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess. This milky oolong tea has been a rare luxury ever since.
SWEET, BOLD, SMOOTH
Rich and sweet with a hint of honey, this handmade premium black tea is DAVIDsTEA exclusive. It comes directly from Jun Chiyabari, an organic tea garden tucked into the highlands of Nepal. We love this little family-owned garden, not just for their innovative teas, but also for their strong belief in community and sustainability.
