Chinese legend tells that many centuries ago a simple servant, who spent his days cleaning the temple where the Iron Goddess’ statue stood, was visited by the Goddess in a dream. In his dream he was told of a secret room within the temple where treasure lay. The next day he went to the room, but instead of finding gold and jewels, he found a tea bush. He planted the bush and it brought him tea, he sold the tea and planted more bushes from which he made more tea. He repaired the temple to its original state, decorated it and himself with fine cloth and gave his neighbours tea bushes so they could share in the wealth.The tea is light and bright with fine yellow liquor much adored by the Chinese.

Brewing our teas

Brewing our teas is pretty straight forwards but you will get the most out of them if you follow some simple instructions.

Oolong Teas

Degrees of oxidisation

Oolong teas go through multiple stages of oxidisation each followed by a period of rolling. This allows for layers of complexity to develop which is a defining character of these teas.

Milk or No Milk?

Not all teas take milk well. For those that do the decision to add milk (or sugar) has to be a personal one. Our advice is to always try it black first. You never know, you might prefer it!
