    Voluptuous, elegant, and composed - the new 2021 harvest is here!

    Li Xiangxi’s old family home is in Tongmu, in a protected ravine with wild bamboo, orange trees and native flowers growing around old growth wild tea bushes. Once a year in the early spring, Li Xiangxi and her family pick the tiny golden buds off the cultivated tea bushes growing below her family home. The beautiful golden color and flavor of this carefully cultivated Jin Jun Mei (Golden Eyebrows) makes it one of the most prized teas in China. This tea is particularly precious as it takes expert hand-labor to harvest the thousands of tiny young buds that go into a single 5g package.


  • 'Wild tea bushes grow right out of the rocks, fed by deep natural springs higher up in the mountains. Simple bamboo aqueducts bring the water downhill, providing good fresh water to the bushes, the Li’s vegetable gardens, and the workshop below.'
