110 * Zongzi Qimen




Amore tea 110 is a historic and famous black tea from Anhui province, China and known as the ‘Queen of black teas’, one of the four major black teas in the world. This rare version is delicately wrapped in a kind of bamboo leaf called ruòyè, and reminiscent of a little snail. The shape and texture is of a zongzi, a traditional sweet dish made of sticky rice wrapped in jujubes or red beans, consumed traditionally during the Dragon Boat Festival.  It is composed mainly of mature leaves with little to no buds, the main harvest type in Anhui.

The tea has great complexity and character due to its long withering and slow oxidation. Bold and full-bodied, it presents rich sweet malty hues of cocoa, ripe yellow fruit, plum, sweet potato and a subtle floral touch and beautiful bamboo hues from the wrapping. The treasures inside this tea will slowly unfold into multiple brews.

Qimen area has a unique rich environment, with abundant rainfall, often cloudy and foggy, and a warm and humid climate making the soil very fertile.  The combination of these natural characteristics results in the special aroma and rich flavour of “Qi Hong”, Qimen black (red) tea.
