The Best Teas of 2014
February 24 & 25, 20157:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
At this tasting we sampled four of the best teas produced in 2014 by our suppliers around the world.Arya Pearl Darjeeling White Tea:
Arya Pearl is an incredible tea to say the least! If you have ever wanted to try a Darjeeling white tea, this is the one! This is the first tea that Arya produced this year and despite the adverse growing conditions this last winter--it still maintains its standing as the "creme de la creme" of all Darjeeling white teas.Huangshan Maofeng, 2014 Organic Pre-Ming Fuxi Artisan GreenTea:
Huangshan Maofeng tea is the most well-known alpine green tea in China. Translated "Yellow Mountain Fur Peak," Huangshan Maofeng tea has been produced in the Anhui province of China for over 400 years.Arya Diamond 2nd Flush Darjeeling Black Teal:
Diamond is, as the name suggests, the crown jewel of Arya teas, and this 2014 second flush truly outshines all others! To say the aroma of this exquisite tea is intoxicating is an understatement!Da Hong Pao:
Da Hong Pao is considered to be the best and is the most famous of China's Wuyi Oolong teas. It is so precious that the original six mother bushes are protected by the government and are no longer allowed to be plucked. The last batch of tea produced by these original bushes in 2006 is now on display at the China National Museum. Famously expensive, in 2002 20-grams of tea from the original mother trees sold for a record price of 180,000 Yuan (US$28,783.42) at the Guangdong Trade Fair.
