Anji Black


Anji an ancient tea from Zhejiang Province. It has recently been reintroduced in black and green form, and has rapidly become one of the most sought after teas in China. Our customers especially love this enchanting Anji Black version. It stole our hearts! (See also Anji Baicha green tea).

About twenty years ago, this special cultivar was found in the northern Zhejiang Province, and it has been a big hit ever since. People, including teamen, wax enthusiastically about the great combination of flavors, sweetness, and body. Mike visited Anji on his recent trip to China. While enjoying some lovely green tea, he also had some black tea made at the same tea factory. It was delicious and brought some back for your ( and his) enjoyment. It is a stellar blend of a mouth filling, tongue coating , and honey flavors. We think you will love it.
