FIRST CHAPTER: one mountain, a thousand variations
Four seasons in tea
Explore and learn with our rarities
Eastern tea club
It is a journey divided in four chapters, one for every season of the year. Each chapter is shipped quarterly, starting this September.
It is designed with the imagination of a traveler on the mountain, and village after village you make your way tasting and evaluating teas following the famous routes.
We start by focusing on Yunnan and Pu'er tea, slowly discovering small local productions and the flavour shades of each terroir, where the roads of Xishuangbanna will lead us.
Valleys of flowers, honey and wilderness
Second chapter: Yiwu
Our journey started from Nannuoshan, and we then cross the Mekong river and we reach the Eastern valleys of Mengla and Yiwu: we explore its famous harmonious taste, declined in the three famous areas of the floral, honey, and wild fragrances.
Trees and villages
We start from the high gate in Gaoshan mountain, and we explore the northern fragrances of Bohetang and Guafengzhai, the area around the wild and remote Tongqing river, and finally two different areas of Manzhuan, Yiwu's neighbouring mountain and one of the famous ancient six.
directly from the source
We know each producer personally and have directly sourced each single tea included in the tea club. They are the precious gems of our travels, and are only available to club members.
Tea samples are shipped once every three months, disclosing a new destination at each chapter, always with free worldwide shipping.
Our own narrative
Each shipping is a chapter of our tea narrative, nourished by our travels, the knowledge we continuously get and the relationships we built over the years. Every day we have a new discovery, and we are excited to share it with you.
A mountain experience at your tea table
In each chapter of our year together we keep the same logic: bring you with us in a multi-layered exploration, whether you are a passionate drinker, a traveller, or a tea professional.
Each shipment includes: 7-10 tea samples of 15gr. each, a web page with information and graphics about the area and teas, and an online session with Vivian Zhang to share knowledge and impressions.
Each chapter can be purchased as a single product (until quantities last), or as a yearly subscription. Annual subscribers will enjoy a 10% discount on all our products with each subsequent shipment.
