Add to my notebook

Our producer of Wei Shan Mao Jian has revived the  old memories of the region and offers us his yellow tea, recently returned to production after many years as the process had been all but lost and forgotten. Composed of a significant proportion of tufted buds, this lot has had a slight anaerobic oxidation in keeping with the tradition of the manufacture of this type of tea. The infusion releases vegetal (fiddleheads) and iodine aromas, evoking smoked mussels. Its light and veiled yellow liquor offers a firm texture complemented by delicious fruity (melon) and floral notes. Its finish is deep and pleasantly sweet!

Sejak Seoladawon | Collection Box

This Corean tea is entirely picked and transformed by hand. The result is of a rare complexity: sweet scents of green peas, kombu seaweed and raisins; body dominated by herbal aromas with hints of chestnuts and peat; lightly tart and marine-like finish with fruity and floral undertones.

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.
