The fragrance of wild orchid in Master's Red testifies the impeccable timing of traditional Living Tea making. Almost 400 years ago, this very red tea (black tea in the West) was brought by the Chinese envoy to be enjoyed by the Royals of the British Empire. Very little has changed in the way it's made today.
As you re-brew, experience dark chocolate and summer raspberry slowly transform into orchid blossoms in alpine forest: if you feel like a hug, this is the tea that will embrace your body and soul.
Following traditional techniques, we diffuse (instead of blend) seasonal wild flowers with Master's Red, making it Master's Special with Wild Cherry Blossom (spring) and Master's Special with Wild Osmanthus (autumn). Below drop-down bar will give you the option to buy.

Our first vintage tea, Master’s Black, was crafted 16 years ago in Yunnan using the ancient Pu'er way, and has been delicately ageing ever since. In a departure from the common industrialised processing, our Pu’er does not rely on man-made humidity and temperature (or “wo-dui”) in a controlled warehouse, but follows nature's course throughout the entire process of making and ageing, never compressing it into cake. Experience smokey alpine woods on the nose, sweet apple on the tongue, cherry blossom in the throat and sense of lightness and flow in your body and mind.
