Green Tea Incense

This blend of Singapore and Vietnam aloeswood is masterfully balanced to evoke crisp vegetal flavor and make green tea taste sweeter and more full bodied. The smoke is immediately evocative of fresh bamboo shoot stir fried and served over rice, a local favorite served in Dragonwell Village, the cultural home of all things green tea. The crisp sweet aroma is accented with marigold florals a touch of grapefruit citrus and enough spice to bring out the natural mineral notes in a tea pairing.

Oolong Tea Incense

This pure vietnamese aloeswood blend is crafted as a bold statement on the complexity of oolong tea. Thick dark lotus florals meld seamlessly with pine notes, a touch of cinnamon spice and tart hibiscus. It takes an incense that spans fruit, floral, spice and savory to be an appropriate oolong pairing and this blend shines. Not only is it rich and aromatic, but it is thick and lingering in the back of the throat.

Black Tea Incense

This vietnamese aloeswood blend is crafted to accentuate the thick fruity qualities in fine black tea. The aroma is full of lychee, banana and sweet thick savory undertones. This incense has the elegance to shine with a Jin Jun Mei, and the body to stand up to a Yunnan Black.

Pu’er Tea Incense

Pu’er is a warm, comforting journey through the forest, and this incense honors that cozy rich beauty that pu’er commands. This Vietnamese aloeswood blend smells like fresh baked, vanilla-heavy cookies and a touch of warm squash. This is meant to be enjoyed with a big cup of pu’er and a comfy chair at the end of the day.

White Tea Incense
White tea is all about texture, sweetness and aftertaste. This restrained and elegant blend is a perfect complement. It is sweet, perfectly silky smooth, cooling with notes of camphor in the back of the throat and rich like peanut butter cookies. It allows the crisp beauty of white tea to shine while providing rich texture to complement the experience.
 
" Lighting incense with tea is a reminder to enjoy with leisure. It is a connection to the idea of ritual, an evocation of nature, and a celebration of our connection to history.... "
