Chilai High Mountain Black

 **After not being able to find a tea of this caliber from the area last year, we are happy to bring back this very popular tea. It was missed!**

This tea is a special one. Grown at 1800m in the Chilai Mountain region, from the moment you open the bag, you know that this tea is different. The candy-sweet red fruit flavors that this tea offers are only possible with highly oxidized high mountain tea leaves from this terroir. This year's production is one of the best we have ever tried. It is an unforgettable tea!

Many people consider this one of the best black teas they have ever had. We are counted among them.

Delicious black tea

This was the first tea I got from Mountain Stream Teas, and it's a huge difference from bagged and loose leaf teas sold in Canada. I found this tea to be subtle, packed with multiple flavour notes. Lasts for 3 brews.

Sooo good!

Sweet even before any sugar is added. Floral and light, it’s so good!!! A must try

“It’ll change your life!”

Since no one has left a review for the 2023 harvest, thought I’d just let you know this is the stuff black tea dreams are made of! It’s stellar!

Delightful tea!

Excellent black tea. Wonderful rose/floral notes. Has been a daily drinker for a couple weeks now.

Highly recommended

Light and sweet

Light and sweet. Hints of caramel and dried oranges. More floral notes in subsequent steepings.
