    The Liu Family's Dark Roast Tieguanyin is finished with long term aging in mind, so careful slow application of heat is used to preserve the green bright core of the tea while bringing out deep spice and savory notes. Each sip is aromatic like Chinese lacquered rosewood, and satisfying like toasted rice. The careful and meticulous craft applied to this tea makes it an incredibly cozy yet complex brew.


  • 'He Qingqing introduced us to Mrs. Liu when we set up our own offices with the He Family in a shared space. Mrs. Liu often walks across the way to help Qingqing and Weiwei pack up fresh shipments of tea, or keeps an eye on Niu Niu and her son while coming over to chat and sticker bags'
