Our journey began in 2014
We personally traveled through China, Japan and Taiwan with backpacks to get to know farmers and tea varieties in the cradle of Asian tea culture, and learn the tricks of growing and making tea. For this reason, we turned our backs on our previous life as an employee, which only seemed to provide security, and used our reserves to go for it. (but really 🙂 )
We bring you our teas directly from the tea farmers
Tradition and tradition
The cultivation and consumption of the tea plant is a thousand-year-old tradition that continues to change to this day.
In order to always be able to show you something valuable, we are constantly learning, listening, tasting and traveling. If we find something really special and coordinate with the tea maker, you will surely find it here in our tea room or on the webshop.
Be present in the moment as a silent observer
Tea as we see it
We experience that with the help of tea we can live a healthier and fuller life in body and soul. By paying attention, we can find peace while preparing and drinking tea. Let's pay attention to our bodily sensations, which are affected by the tea. We can learn to be present in the moment as a quiet observer. At other times, during more difficult times, it might be useful to remember this.
The thousands of years of cult surrounding tea drinking rightfully prove that tea is more than a healthy drink.
Authentic tea consumption creates an intimate relationship and a common language between people. We can even use it for this! However, we caution anyone to think of drinking tea as the Holy Grail, the solution to all problems, troubles and unhappiness. That is why we need to do much more. However, during everyday struggles, a cup of warm and fragrant tea from a good place can be very helpful.
We'll help you navigate
Get to know Asian tea culture at home
What does the term 'gaiwan', 'oolong' or 'puer' tell us? A lot of things for us. Allow us to tell you too!
Each of our teas has a special story, which is linked to the experiences we have gathered during our travels. Through them, we learned to understand and really enjoy the endless possibilities inherent in Asian tea varieties.
By creating a calm and open environment, we would like to share with you the experiences that led us to leave our previous lives behind and devote our attention one hundred percent to tea.
We want you to have tea with us, enriched with experiences, relaxed in body, and more alert in mind! It will be a special gift for us if, after this meeting, you will be more open to the culture of tea consumption... After all, there is life beyond the filter!
