Tea Forest Dragon Balls
Our Yueguangbai white tea and Dianhong red tea sourced from the tea forest, delicately hand rolled into perfect spheres of 6.5 gr. ca each. Packaged into single portion balls, they can be easily carried with you or stored and allowed to age further. When they are lightly placed in hot water, they blossom and transform, bringing the flavors of the forest alive once again in your tea vessel.
The fresh leaves we used to produce these dragon balls were sourced from a local Yunnan tea farmer who has never before allowed her land to be used commercially. Among the wild cherry and fruit trees grow wild tea trees, planted the year she was born to celebrate her birth. The unique history of this tea is reflected in its potent flavor, containing hints of the forest and fruit trees that surrounded it. We are honored to harvest and process the tea from this sacred land.

Our tea production
This tea comes from the tea forest we own in Yunnan, in Nannuo and Lunan/Pasha mountain.
We take care of each leg of the production: from the care of the under-forest until package and distribution.
Generations of masters
Our production is entirely supervised by Yan Kunli, that was born and raised on Nannuo mountain, and in 2007 won the Pu'er Shengpu producer competition for the highest Shaqing skills, among all the Hani minority in Yunnan.
He is the master in his craft, and we are proud to have him with us.
