Tea should benefit
the community that grows it.

This holiday season, all sales of Qianjiazhai pu’er and black tea support the Zhenyuan Jiujia Wengang Village Primary School.

25% of proceeds will be donated to assist with purchasing new books and supporting the operation of the sleep-away elementary school where Mr. Deng and his family work as faculty and as part of the Zhenyuan Dongsa cooperative.

The Harmony Series is a brand-new project- a collaboration between Master Zhou and Verdant in selecting tea from a wide range of tree ages to get a cross section of the flavor, texture and aroma that defines Qianjiazhai. Master Zhou blends Gu Hua harvest picking from trees between one hundred and three hundred years of age with older five hundred to a thousand year trees to get the thick powerful flavor and juicy quality of the younger leaf, bolstered by the woody texture, tingling mouthfeel and cooling sensation of the older trees. The result is the first ever Harmony Series pressing, hand finished in Master Zhou’s favorite Xiao Jin Gua form for loose compression and maximum ageability. This tea is an incredible taste experience now, and promises to age like no other Qianjiazhai pressing before it.

" However much moisture the tea wants to release, that is how much evaporates…. If you roast it at high temperatures, you are changing what it wants. The tea wants to hold on to a little moisture, but the [high] heat forces it out...... "
