Monkey Picked Oolong Legend has it, many centuries ago Buddhist monks had trained monkeys to climb to the very top of the tea plants growing on steep mountain slopes and pluck the tea leaves, as the leaves could not be reached by man. Being one of the rarest grades of Oolong, the tea was enjoyed exclusively by the Imperial Court.

Organic Jasmine Pearl A jasmine flower’s delicate allure wafts gently to you. A sweet moment of bliss is cradled in your teacup. Rare and truly beautiful, this premier grade of white tea, covered in silvery white down, it scented seven times in the imperial custom. Hand-rolled pearls unfurl seductively in the cup, releasing the enchanting jasmine perfume.

White-Tip Darjeeling Clinging to the mountain’s sides, amongst the rarest of orchids and through the blankets of snow, a bud wakens, shaking off the winter frost. This rare, high-grade Darjeeling embodies the phrase “the champagne of teas”. With character beyond compare, an enchanting tea that mystifies when made with the utmost of care deserving of its nature.
