It has been now over 20 years that my day starts with a cup of Halmari black orthodox tea. The taste, best described, is a perfect combination of wood, malt, sweetness and subtle astringency. I have not experienced this consistency of maintaining quality at the highest level, in any other estate. On my visits to tea estates in China, Japan, Taiwan and Africa, I have brewed Halmari tea together with some of the world’s finest teas like Da Hong Pao, Yin Zhen Silver Needle, Dan Cong Huang Feng and Formosa Oriental Beauty, tasted it together with the masters and there was complete unanimity that Halmari orthodox belongs to that club.
