A worthy representative of the great teas of China, this white tea consisting purely of buds catches the eye at first sight. The lively and silky liquor fills the palate with fruity and vegetal fragrances (straw, mushroom). Long and delicate, its finish is flowery (chamomile) and refreshing.

Nan Mei Wild Tree Buds

Plucked from wild trees in Nan Mei Valley in the Lincang area, these young silvery buds promise an amazing experience for any tea lover. Fragrances of aromatic herbs (sage) and clementine emanate from the infusion and its liquor is sweet, silky and spicy, aroma characteristic of tea from wild tea trees. The lemony finish is most memorable!

Infusion Beaker by CS

After the pouring the water onto the leaves, the transparency of the glass will display the pleasant spectacle of their waltz, and the gradual darkening of the liquor. The infusion beaker is a perfect accessory for fans of tea in free infusion, which lends itself particularly well to large-leaf and herbal teas.

Jingning Yin Zhen Organic

Worthy of the expertise of Mr He, this superb white tea is of uniform, smooth and fine buds. The infusion offers rich flavors of oats, fruit (ripe banana) and flowers, nuanced in the mouth by a peppery accent. Its rosy liquor is sweet, oily and full. Well balanced, it evolves to a minty and thirst quenching finish. To be savoured in tranquillity!
