Tea Studio | Nilgiri Pu er Maocha

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTVI-266

Introducing the very first Maocha that we have produced, in the style of the Chinese Pu er Sheng, at the Tea Studio, our tea factory in India. Another experimental project that highlights the great potential of this innovative studio.

The leaves are rolled into long twists, creating a luminous liquor with a smooth texture. The usual vegetal vivacity of a young Sheng is slightly softened by the leaf material. Apricot scents and delicate orange flavours combine with floral notes. The lingering effect on the palate is one of awakening and bliss.

Dynamic and passionate, the Camellia Sinensis team is proud to take on a new role in the industry (producer), with the Tea Studio.

The Tea Studio is a factory in the Nilgiris in India, created in collaboration with a group of Indian partners.

We joined forces with our respective expertise to propel this innovative project managed entirely by a local team of women.

An inspiring project instilled with the same values as our tea houses.
