Wild Galangal Ancient Black Tea

Our Wild Galangal Ancient Black Tea is a concoction of Wild Greater Galangal Rhizome with our Wild Black Tea, made from trees definitely more than 250 years old.

We follow a rigorous and meticulous blending process, which is the method adopted for authentic Chinese Jasmine Teas. Unlike most blending methods which are done by mixing tea with dried materials, our blending is done with fresh Greater Galangal Rhizomes.

Our teas are blended with fresh Galangal Rhizomes overnight in a basket (container) and separated the next day morning and the tea leaves are then sun dried
These process is repeated over several times in order to achieve the right mix
This method of blending gives an infusion of fresh aromas which is more enjoyable than aroma infused through dried herbs, flavor oils or flowers
Also, this process avoid infusion of dried herbs/flowers while brewing the tea, as the dried herbs/flowers sometimes give unwanted taste and texture to the tea liquor

The tea has a very distinct aroma of fennel seed, when placed on the heated ware though, you get a distinct honey aroma which is also translated well into the liquor. The liquor has just a hint of the fennel seed note imparted by the galangal and is accompanied with a lot of sweet notes like caramel, raisins and honey. There are notes of galangal root on the finish and the tea feels very warming to drink. This is a wintertime special tea and it suits the weather around the world perfectly, bringing a much needed warmth into your body!
