Aged Tea

From what age can tea be called aged?

There is no single rule. Some people call teas aged when older than 10 years, some when older than 15 years. We decided to put in this special section all of our teas older than 20 years. This is an uncompromising option. More...

There is a saying that goes: a beginner drinks tea with his mouth, an advanced tea-lover drinks with the throat, a tea master with his body. Aged tea is especially proper to drink with the body, when the organoleptic properties move to the background, and the energy or Cha Qi is more in the foreground, when tea is perceived holistically, like a magic elixir.

Imagine that you are Alice in Wonderland picking up a cup that says “drink me.” How will you drink this tea? Most likely, very carefully, listening to the sensations in the body - where it will take you to. Less...

Not every tea becomes better with age

Another very important aspect is the quality of material and processing. It often happens that a weak, plantation material loses its properties after long-term storage. All Thai Pu-erhs are made from the material of old trees, so our aged teas show incredible stamina, dense taste, and a powerful effect on the body.

Storage aspects

When buying an aged tea it is very important to know whether it was well-stored. Sometimes, in pursuit of antique rarities, sellers expose tea spoiled by improper storage, where white mold densely adorns the cake's surface. They add an extra 10-20 years to its age and increase the price, passing off the mold as nobility. And we’d better say nothing about the taste here. More...

We take the appreciation of old tea seriously and taste it carefully. We sell only the ones that we drink with pleasure ourselves. Thai storage can be compared with Malaysian, although in some samples it can approach the traditional Hong Kong results. Less...
