About

Eastern Leaves owns a forest tea plantation in Nannuo and Pasha Mountains, which flourishes naturally in the undergrowth of a centuries-old Yunnan high mountain forest.

We interfere as little as possible with the growth of our trees, trying to preserve the original thriving environment that surrounds them: this is the reason we call ourselves forest keepers rather than farmers.

Our production

We take care of each leg of the production of our teas, from the forest care untill distribution and signature packaging.

We produce Pu'er shengpu, shupu, Dianhong red tea and Yueguagnbai white tea, all of them available in different formats and vintages.

Tea and teaware selection

Besides our production, season after season we carefully select small batches of other teas from like-minded producers, with whom we have developed a long-term relationship.

These teas are often prized in the Chinese most important tea fairs, and are available both in our online shop, for wholesale and in our tearoom.

Learning

Tea Academy

In 2019, after a decade spent as tea scholars and producers, our founder Vivian Zhang decided to start her own educational program in cooperation with the Chinese National Tea Academy.

We offer courses and masterclasses on Chinese tea, either long-term and one-day tastings online or offline in our tea-room and our tea forest.

Our courses
