Add to my notebook

Following the aesthetic of a Bai Hao with the cultivar (qingshin), a favourite of the Taiwanese, this "Oriental Beauty" comes to us from plantations located on the flanks of the Jingmai mountain in Yunnan (China).

Its long leaves with hues of ochre and khaki reveal, upon immersion in water, rich fragrances of bark and cooked pears. Its attractive amber liquor boasts sweet and tart flavors evoking citrus zest.

The finish lightly cradles the palate with its nuances of sweet spices (cinnamon) and heady flowers.

Chi Ye Bai Ye

This Chinese dark Wulong grown in the Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) presents a great example of balanced charcoal roasting: light chestnut aromas with a side of ripe fruits and a lingering flowery breath in the finish.

Bai Hao

Easily one of the most famous teas coming out of Taiwan, Bai Hao wulong carries out a very distinctive taste (akin to muscat grapes and spices) that is due to the intervention of a very specific leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana).

Camellia Sinensis Duo Cup | Pure White

This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.

Bai Rui Xiang

A worthy representative of the rock wulongs, this wulong with delicately rolled leaves was only slightly roasted, preserving its flavourful vegetal (courgette) and floral fineness. Its full and tangy (tangerine) liquor, deploys rich tropical (durian) and honeyed aromas.
