Ya'an 雅安 Dark Tibetan Tea

The ancient trading route to Tibet

Ya 雅 means "elegance", An 安 means peace: these two characters of its name well represents Ya'an, an ancient town surrounded by verdant and steep mountain between the eastern flatlands and the western Tibetan plateau.

Here, tea has been grown for two millennia, and it has been a supplier for the royal courts of China and Tibet for over 1000 years.

We propose a selection of two dark tea, Heicha 黑茶, produced locally following the ancient Tibetan taste driven by lamas and nobles.

Cowhide and original seals

The top two grades of this tea are called Kāngzhuān 康砖 and Jīnjiān 金尖, both based on high quality raw material.

This dark tea is traditionally preserved in 30 Kilograms packages wrapped in cowhide, that in ancient times assured the best protection along the arduous route to Tibet, on the back of horses and yak, and intended for many years of ageing.

Our trusted supplier and collector has a wide archive of the original seals used in the last 70 years: it is the only way to guarantee the authenticity of the older teas, bought in auction at high prices.

Although the appearance appears simple and primitive, it achieved great quality and value: at auction an intact package (about 30KG) value varies from 50,000 to 500,000 RMB.
