Year of the Rabbit Tea Sampler
Wild Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needle): This delicate but assured white tea reminds us of how in fables, a rabbit’s kindness can be mistaken as a weakness. It is with the rabbit’s kindness that he finds his strength, just as with Bai Hao Yin Zhen it is with its delicate nature that it finds its force. Handmade and naturally sun-dried from wild tea trees in the most sought-after terroir of Dian Tou, Fu Ding, this tea makes your tongue feel like it's sleeping on a cloud.
Dan Cong, Wu Long (Oolong Tea)
Bai Ye: A playful and beloved cultivar of Dan Cong - this tea reminds us of the joyful energy a rabbit brings. With its heartwarming woodsy notes and fruity aroma that fills the room, it’s hard not to feel joy when drinking this tea. This batch is harvested from Lao Cong (old tea trees over 60 years old,) quite a rare and unique treat!
Chi Gan: Red envelopes are the classic gift around Lunar New Year. To honor this tradition, we’ve added an ultra-umami red tea to the mix, one that we love for its aroma of sweet tangerines and woodsy finish. Like the color red, this is a tea to brighten any day of the new year!
Pu Er Sheng Cha
Wu Liang Shan: Hand-harvested deep in the forest from ancient tea trees, ranging from 200-600 years old, this tea has an incredibly round and soft texture, which is rare for a Pu Er, but familiar to a rabbit. Each sip transports us to laying back on soft summer grass, basking in the sunshine, wishing to see a bunny bounce by.
