The Wahgi Valley tea plantations with an elevation of around 5,000ft are situated in the mountainous region of Papua New Guinea. 

Grown without pesticides or herbicides and low in tannin this tea will satisfy tea drinkers who like their tea strong, piquant and rich in colour. Milk will enhance the experience and is a perfect early morning cuppa.

  • Wahgi Valley tea is a very fine-cut leaf with fine granular particles, producing a rich brew with sediment.  

If you don't mind some tea in the bottom of the cup, the reward will be great.

Brewing tips: 

  • 1/2 teaspoon per cup, add boiling water and brew for 2 minutes.
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon will produce a very strong brew!

Black Tea (Camellia Sinensis)
(Almost) Impossible to get wrong

This tea will provide a reliable pot of tea that is drinkable almost regardless of how much you put in - it is almost impossible to get wrong, as the tea does not get bitter when made stronger or left too long. Flavour is not complex - just tea-like. Can also be used for culinary purposes.

For forty years we have been drinking New Guinea BOP tea. We first purchased it from Queensland importers until the plantations changed hands and we were no longer able to obtain it until a local Tasmanian firm were able to supply us. They stopped getting the product and that is when we started purchasing from Tea Leaves. It is the same fine quality tea from the New Guinea highlands that we have loved for many years. Thank you Tea Leaves!
