FIRST CHAPTER: one mountain, a thousand variations
Four seasons in tea
Explore and learn with our rarities
Eastern Tea Club
It is a journey divided in four chapters, one for every season of the year. Each chapter is shipped quarterly, starting this September.
It is designed with the imagination of a traveler on the mountain, and village after village you make your way tasting and evaluating teas following the famous routes.
We start by focusing on Yunnan and Pu'er tea, slowly discovering small local productions and the flavour shades of each terroir, where the roads of Xishuangbanna will lead us.
The first chapter: shades of nannuo
One mountain, a thousand variations
Our journey starts from Nannuo, the mountain in which we live, the first and most loved land that hosts us: we explore together different villages at different altitudes, tasting their leaves and trying to understand the variations between micro-environments and trees.
Trees and villages
We start from the ecological trees of Shuihe village, at the base of Nannuo, and we climb our way to the mountain passing by four different forests of ancient trees and three more forests of big trees, for a total of eight teas.
It will be a travel of flavors of Nannuo mountain, that will allow you to create your own flavour-map and profile of the area.

Each shipping is a chapter of our tea narrative, nourished by our travels, the knowledge we continuously get and the relationships we built over the years. Every day we have a new discovery, and we are excited to share it with you.
