Tea Farm

We source this fine tea directly from a collective of regional tea farmers. The tea farm attained all major international organic certifications in 2014.

Character

Flavour

A refreshing new interpretation of Earl Grey which is usually made with black tea. For this variation we selected high-quality highland white tea from Yunnan as well as original Italian bergamot oil. The white tea's exceptionally buttery vanilla and mild fruit notes of peach perfectly pair with the citrus aroma of bergamot oil. The result is a finely composed White Earl Grey of the finest quality.

Cultivation

Location, Cultivation, Processing

The highland of Yunnan has a mild, subtropical climate up to great heights. The climatic conditions of the highland's southern-facing slopes are predominantly influenced by the Indian Ocean and South China Sea.

The tea field is located in a mountainous area at over 1,800m elevation. This high elevation not only slows growth to produce aromatic tea, but also is prohibitive to insects and pests that would otherwise be attracted to the tea plants. As a result, the tea farmers do not need to utilise pesticides. The result is an impressive organic tea with an intense aroma.

Buds and leaves are selected by hand from the treasured 1st harvest. After harvesting, the buds and leaves are withered for up to 3 days due to factors associated with the high elevation. Because the air is very thin, the leaves oxidise slowly and develop an especially delicate flavour profile that is similar to the finest highland teas of Darjeeling.
