Creamy Chardonnary Oolong

According to legend, one of the first tea plants brought to Taiwan was planted in the Dong Ding mountain region. The soil and climate in this area is the ideal temperament for tea plants to thrive. 

This handpicked creamy oolong from Dong Ding mountains is silky smooth and buttery. It is the tea version of a classic Chardonnay, but you can drink it in the morning and feel great about it! The tea is skillfully roasted, creating a unique flavour — a warm, floral aroma and its taste has hints of honey and roasted nuts. It is complex, but easy to drink. It always keeps you interested. Plus this tea is oxidized resulting in a partial fermentation, which supports the gut. A perfect drink for any time of the day, best to share with friends over a long drawn out afternoon conversation, or a solo deep dive work session. 

Farmed by a third generation tea farmer, from his family's farm with love and care.

Balance Collection

Finding balance in life feels like an impossible task. However, there are small moments when you can feel balance in your body and mind. A moment of pause and reconnection creates harmony. Like a weighted grounded feeling where your body sinks into the earth and you are floating all at the same time.
