teaCLUB exclusive: This tea is from Tongmuguan in Wuyishan, China. Tongmuguan is home to some very old tea trees. Tea families there are making tea from the same trees their great grandparents tended to. Old Grove Black Tea is made from trees that are at least 50 years old, and ours is from 70-year-old trees, making it a very premium tea.


These trees grow tall, with thick branches covered in moss. When trees pass the 50 year mark, the stem begins to harden from the centre and the leaves gain a more complex flavour profile with an extra sweetness and a stronger aftertaste.


We taste something akin to fragrant wood or tree bark, with notes of toasted grain and an underlying mineral flavour that is characteristic of tea from this region.

Gongfu style: 4g in 100ml of 95°C water for 60, 70, 80-second steeps

Western style: 2g per 100ml of 90°C water for 3-minute steeps

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
