Six kinds of tea & five passionate growers – these are the iconic classics that represent what we and our partner growers stand for: true sustainability, transparency, and the taste and aroma that come from the impeccable terroir and craft of the best growers in China.

This tasting kit combines teas from five of our partners, spanning growing regions across China and representing six different styles of tea including one green tea, one Wuyi black tea, two Anxi oolong teas, one sheng pu’er, one shu pu’er. Each tea is sourced directly from the people who grow and finish the teas themselves, for a representative and unblended taste of each family and craftperson’s terroir and unique point of view.

Taste Six Teas from Five Partners: 

 

Laoshan Biluochun Green Tea (25g)
sourced from the He Family in Laoshan

Classic Laoshan Bilochun is picked after the He Family removes the protective greenhouse coverings from their tea at the end of the cold season. The hand-twisting and slow finishing process of bilochun is Mr. He’s personal favorite, making this his own daily go-to tea. Hand-processing brings out even thicker texture and sweeter creamier flavors than classic Laoshan Green.

Jin Jun Mei Wuyi Black Tea (25g)
sourced from the Li Family in Wuyishan

Jin Jun Mei Wuyi black tea is one of the most labor intensive and demanding teas to produce. Fine Jin Jun Mei is made exclusively from tiny spring buds, and requires thousands and thousands of hand-picked golden buds to make a single pound of finished tea. The result is a downy tea with a thick full texture, and a beautiful elegance. Li Xiangxi’s spring-fed tea grows out of rocky, sandy soil, yielding a rich mineral flavor true to Wuyishan’s unique terroir.

Spring Tieguanyin (25g)
sourced from Master Zhang in Daping

Master Zhang is proud to be sharing true Tieguanyin varietal oolong, fed by mountain spring water and grown without pesticides or fertilizers under the high mountain mist. Most Tieguanyin sold is actually Benshan or other similar varietals which lack the long drawn out aftertaste of Tieguanyin. The biodiversity of Daping lends complexity and depth of flavor to this tea, with a compelling combination of fresh aroma, clean flavor and compelling aftertaste.

2000 Aged Tieguanyin (25g)
sourced from Master Zhang in Daping

Master Zhang is making some of the finest Tieguanyin in the world. Based in Daping village at the very highest peaks of Gande, Anxi. His terraced fields are overgrown with wildflowers, and fed by naturally sweet and clear mountain spring water. Master Zhang rarely releases such mature aged Tieguanyin, but when he does, the result is intensely rewarding. The slow and subtle roasting and aging process adds deep lingering spice to the Tieguanyin florals.

2018 Gu Hua Sheng Pu’er (25g)
sourced from the Zhenyuan Dongsa Cooperative in Qianjiazhai

Craft and terroir have come together beautifully for this 2018 early autumn harvest from Qianjiazhai’s wild tea trees. The Dongsa Cooperative wild-forages buds and tender leaves from tea trees between one hundred and three hundred years of age for this loose sheng pu’er blend. Every hand-picked leaf is withered and sun-dried in bamboo baskets, with little or no heat exposure to lock in the most wild and natural flavor of one of the most remote growing regions in the world.

2014 Loose Gong Ting Shu Pu’er  (25g)
sourced from the Zhenyuan Dongsa Cooperative in Qianjiazhai

Qianjiazhai Gong Ting Shu Pu’er is still a very new practice, made only by one of Master Zhou’s students in the cooperative. Using the giant buds of QIanjiazhai’s wild trees between 100 and three hundred years of age, this tea is carefully and slowly pile fermented to bring out a deep rich sweetness unlike any other shu pu’er out there. Master Zhou was so excited by this experiment he is sharing the technique across the cooperative and encourage more members to keep developing the craft.
