Our white teas are appreciated and prized for their delicacy, rarity and subtle character. These freshly picked, young tea leaves and buds are entirely handmade and is a testament to each of our tea makers and their craftsmanship.
Green tea is made by processing the tea leaves immediately after it is harvested to ensure minimal oxidation through heat: either by steaming, pan-firing, sun-drying, or charcoal firing. This maintains those freshly picked notes, with a character range from vegetal, herbal to grassy.
Oolong teas are characterized by longer oxidation creating complex flavors and aromatic compounds. These partially fermented tea leaves represent true artisanal mastership of processing as it offers the widest character range amongst all teas, from light and floral to dark and intense.
Black teas are allowed to undergo full oxidation through a lengthy processing. The process requires attention, control, and a scientific understanding of the physical and chemical changes in the tea leaf as it matures. This produces a rich, bold flavour with a classic deep amber liquor.
