There is incredible diversity in the ethnic tribes of Guizhou, south-west China. Each tribe has its own rich tea culture and traditions, and each region has its own speciality tea. Every spring, we trek the Guizhou mountains in search of the very best regional produce.

Tai tea trees, native to the east of the province, have grown wild and remained almost inaccessible for millenia. They're bold in colour, taste and nutrients thanks to the area's mineral-rich soil and unique natural spring irrigation. A typical brew of Tai tea has an infusion extract of 46% (a good quality whole leaf infusion is around 32%). Tai teas are packed with much more nutrients than other teas – including vitamins, anthocyanin (a natural anti-oxidant) and minerals such as Ka, Zinc and Selenium.
