Distinctive in its earthy flavour, this Hunan beauty is caressed with gentle smokiness, wild fruits and forest moss. A tea of sophistication.

Located in a remote mountainous area in China’s central south Hunan region, tea has been cultivated this region since 1524. This full bodied black tea has been aged for 20 years to slowly let nature perfects imperfections. It allows a good amount of character development. We break it down fresh to order.

Tasting notes: earthy, woody, velvety, delicate smokiness and sweet fruits.

Hunan

Our Signature dark aged tea is cultivated from the central south Hunan region. Located in a remote mountainous area, tea has been cultivated in Anhua since 1524. With four distinct seasons, abundant rainfall and a short cold period encourage rich biodiversity, and foster the growth of high quality teas.
Tea plantation in Hunan, China

Known for its soft and thick leaves, the large leaf species from this region is one of the famous tea tree varieties in China.

The tea our tea masters curated from this region is rich and mellow and long lasting floral aroma. When brewed, the tea is golden amber, with fresh pine forest, with a touch of mushroom and a tint of smokiness. It is soft and warm as it gently soothes and energises the body.
