European Tour – Our leaves go west

Posted by Lorenzo Barbieri on

In Yunnan, in our forest, the rain is falling daily, to regenerate and nourish the soil. It reassures us about our tea trees, we know they will be good during the next dry, wintertime months.
Our 2018 Spring harvest tea leaves have been packed and are ready to make their travel west, to Europe, ready to be experienced and enjoyed by every passionate, taste-lover who wants to join us.
Between September 16th and October 9th we will be in Holland, France, and Italy: hereunder we publish a calendar, come back often checking for updates and feel free to contact us anytime for further information, suggestions, and bookings!

September 16th, 1pm, The Hague @Filtro Coffee

Presented by Jessica Zagers of The Aesthetic Leaf, we will brew together our best teas from the 2018 Spring Harvest.

September 29th, 10:30 am @Terroir, Milan

Years ago, while walking through Milan, we noticed a shop with a large window; it was completely empty, except for a tiny piece of wood with a pile of books about tea, coffee and food, and for a young guy seating on the bare floor. The sign was a forest drawing with a bold white text that said: Terroir. We knocked on the door.
In Terroir Milano they believe with passion in “the ability of places in absorbing thoughts and traditions of human beings”, and you can see it, and taste it, in each product they have. We are honored to have the chance to talk about our own terroir, and especially to share ideas in this charming and inspiring place.

Registration: to be announced, follow us for updates!


October 5th, @Cafè Fauve, October 8th at Thé-ritoires, and October 9th @Autre Thé, in Paris

We are so glad to be back in France, and especially with such an exciting and diverse program: we start at Cafè Fauve with a tea tasting with passionate people and professionals, sharing ideas at the same table; we continue with a food and tea pairing at Thé-ritoires, following our great passion for flavors and cuisine, and we finish our Parisian nights with a tea tasting at Autre Thé, organized by the renowned association Confrérie du Thé.
All these events are presented by María Kockmann, the finest partner and guide into the French tea-scene we could hope to find.
