We are small family tea shop located in Kunming , Ju Hua Yuan tea market. We mainly specialize on pu-erh tea and black (red) tea. Except of famous brands , which we have in offer for our customer's satisfaction, we mainly focusing on smaller , less known producers , tea crafters, farmers.
The aim is not only provide a good quality tea and support those small tea makers same time , but also give to the tea drinkers an opportunity to try unique teas differently processed , from various areas , mountains and villages in Yunnan. Beside of regular bush tea ( tai di cha ) we are trying to offer as much as we can teas from Arbor , Old or Ancient trees which is getting harder and harder each year.
Our goal is not to be an Ultimate Tea Vendor providing every possible tea available on the tea market ( although We do have an access to Kunming tea markets on wholesale basis and able to source any tea - special orders. ) , neither resell average tea in some fancy packaging for much higher price, but to select only some tea which we find outstanding for it's quality - taste - price.
All teas in our online selection are the ones we personally enjoy drinking and we feel confident with. ( recommend to our customers )
We travel to the tea farms few times per year and doing it as a hobby rather than business, so we share obtained experiences on our blogs although we know we have been followed mostly by competitors :-) In fact, we are happy if other tea vendors read and learn from our mistakes, because we believe it can benefit to all of us . Simply do the things right.
We do not and we don't want to compete with anyone , that's not our dream as same as not promoting such a commercially lifted Tea Culture. We simply want to sell good quality tea and teaware for fair price.
Siran - Yunnan girl coming from the family doing tea business dating back to 1920 in Kunming. ( Bi Luo Chun Tea House ). She decided to continue the tradition which was abandoned by the previous generation and build all from the scratch again , relying only on her knowledge and passion for tea.
Alex - born in Russia ( in Soviet times :-) , grew up in Czech Republic and lived in Ireland many years. Met his wife ( Siran ) on his travels across the Asia and decided to stay. Learned about the Chinese tea and got seriously addicted , especially to pu-erh tea.
