Chinese tea

China is the origin of tea. The first teas were grown here long before our era. The tea tradition is ancient, more than a millennium ago tea was an elevated, gastronomic fine culture. We find here an enormous wealth of all conceivable types of tea. Huge and varied areas of mountain ranges offer perfect environments for tea cultivation. The creativity and knowledge among theme makers has for a long time driven the evolution of all the types of tea we know today - everything from green to oolong, white, yellow, aged puerh, and even the blacks that have mostly been exported.

Since China is such a tea paradise, it is natural that their teas take a large place in our range, that our family originates from Hong Kong also makes it natural and easy to travel and maintain contacts with the main themes in the country.
We work with a number of farms in China that grow without pesticides and fertilizers and are located at a high altitude in a clean and scenic environment.
Some of them are organically certified.
