Pantenger Black Orchid black tea is an exceptional example of Congou tea. The term means disciplined skill and effort and it also emphasises something well made. Pantenger is proud to bring to the US one of the finest examples of Black Tea the world offers.

Pantenger Black Orchid black tea loose leaf is naturally grown at a high elevation (4200 to 4600 FT) single estate in the Alishan tea producing region of Taiwan. At this altitude maturation of the tea leaves is slow, so the flavor concentrates and develops a unique flowery aroma. Tea bushes receive direct sunlight in the morning and water from the misty clouds in the afternoon, the ideal situation to grown one of the finest teas in the world.
The process starts at the tea garden where only the most talented tea pickers choose the best leaves. Then at the tea factory, the tea master crafts the tea to obtain a refined flavor and aroma.
