Ali Shan 1999 (Charcoal Roast)

Plucked by hand and aged since 1999 by successive charcoal roasting, this high mountain tea offers an infusion with glossy black leaves and warm fragrances. Its liquor is rounded, velvety and deploys a broad range of aromatic nuances, with accents through woods and vanilla to notes of iodine (seaweed) and empyreumatics (coffee, caramel). The finish is gentle and deep.

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.

Bai Hao 2008

Aged for almost ten years, this wulong from Mr. Xu is sure to charm all admirers with the scent of brown sugar that emanates from its blend of whole leaves and fine silver buds. In infusion flavours of bark and roasted coffee dominate the aromatic spectrum. Its liquor, clear and mineral, retains a certain vitality despite its years of dormancy. Buckwheat (honey) and butter caramel notes enhance the slightly spicy pastry aspect of this tea from the North West of Taiwan.

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.

Du Yun Mao Jian

From Guizhou Province in China, this tea has a beautiful contrast of silver buds and dark green curled leaves. The infusion provides bold marine and vegetable (fried spinach) aromas.

Gyokuro Shuin

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region. Three weeks before the manual harvest, the tea bushes are covered and up to 85% of the sun's rays are filtered out to help create what the Japanese refer to as the "taste of the shade". The result is a highly aromatic and complex tasting tea that contains very little tannins. The vegetal character evokes marine flavours of salt and iodine (fresh wakame seeweed) and green vegetable (spinach, swiss chard, and cooked celery) notes. The soft green liquor is bright and has a lingering delicate and herbaceous …

Gyokuro Tamahomare

Three weeks before hand harvesting, shade structures which filter out up to 90% of sunlight are placed over the tea to develop what is commonly called in Japan "the taste of the shadows" . The result is a tea weak in tannins, highly complex and aromatic. Extra smooth by virtue of its velvety texture and delicate fragrances of snow peas, water chestnuts and corn salad, this tea, with leaves of intense emerald green, will delight you with its finesse and depth. The quintessence of Japanese teas.
