Dejiang Long Zhu

Coming straight from a new garden project perched at 1,200 meters above sea level in eastern Guizhou, this tea harvested from 5-year-old seedlings of the Fuding Da Bai cultivar was grown without chemicals, as evidenced by the results of our laboratory tests in Shanghai. Its name (De Jian Long Zhu) refers to the young shoots strewn with buds rolled into small pearls that make up this everyday green tea. A bold and frankly vegetable liquor, evoking the taste of snow peas. Fruity and empyreumatic accents (smoked mussels) complete the tasting of this accessible, thirst quenching tea.

Anji Bai Cha

Anji Bai Cha is a treasure of refinement visible in the sight of its beautiful threadlike leaves, resembling pine needles. In the infusion they blossom to provide a liquor of a translucent jade hue. On the palate, sweet and tangy flavors are enhanced by vegetal notes (bok choy), gourmet (pine nuts, butter) and flowers. A tasty tea with a sublime and delicate finish.

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.

Sencha Nagashima Organic

This high fired Sencha has dark glossy leavesgives a clear light yellow liquor, full and sweet, vegetal and zesty. Roasted and cereal notes develop into a fresh floral finish.
