Preparation


Classic


This tea can be made in a classic teapot, following the tradition of 1tsp per person and 1 for the pot. Add 95˚ spring or filtered water or just off the boil and infuse for 3 minutes. It is delicious on its own or with milk and sweetener. 


 


Gaiwan / Artisan Press / Yixing Tea Pot


Warm and rinse your vessel and cups with boiled water. Place two teaspoons or 3g of tea into your vessel; a simple rule of thumb is that the leaves should generously cover the bottom. Add spring or filtered water at 95° or just off the boil. Infuse for 30 seconds and pour into your cup(s). Remember to re-infuse 3-4 times, increasing steeping time to taste. Enjoy the evolution of taste as the leaves release their nutrients.


 


Story 


This Wild Yunnan Black was brought in for the everyday black tea lover. It is invigorating and bright, and has a comforting malty base. It is delicious on its own or with milk and sweetener. Harvested by Ms. Chun Lin from wild 50-year-old trees it carries the qi of the surrounding pristine environment. The tea is hand picked and processed in a small production facility on her land, of which her family have been the guardians for countless generations.


 


Ms.Chun Lin also makes our Ancient Tree Golden Needle from the older wild trees on her land.
