Tea Farm

We source this fine tea directly from a collective of regional tea farmers. The tea farm attained all major international organic certifications in 2014.



This delicate pai mu tan ranks among the best Chinese white teas available. The hand-selected buds and leaves satisfy the highest quality standards. Cultivation at 1,800m elevation lends the tea a unique, aromatic profile. Buttery vanilla notes and nuanced notes of peach and balm make this tea special. The texture is wonderfully creamy and leaves a velvety feel on the tongue. A pure delight.

We go to great lengths to identify the finest organic tea farms across the world’s most celebrated terroirs. All our teas are sourced directly from the farmer and, with a few exceptions, are certified organic or come from pesticide-free farms. Each batch of tea for every harvest is tested for pesticides and other pollutants in an independent German lab to ensure they meet our strict quality standards as well as HACCP food safety requirements.

About Yoshi En.

Cultivation & Processing

The highland of Yunnan has a mild, subtropical climate up to great heights. The climatic conditions of the highland's southern-facing slopes are predominantly influenced by the Indian Ocean and South China Sea.

The tea field is located in a mountainous area at over 1,800m elevation. This high elevation not only slows growth to produce aromatic tea, but also is prohibitive to insects and pests that would otherwise be attracted to the tea plants. As a result, the tea farmers do not need to utilise pesticides. The result is an impressive organic tea with an intense aroma.

Buds and leaves are selected by hand from the treasured 1st harvest. After harvesting the buds and leaves are withered for up to 3 days due to factors associated with the high elevation. Because the air is very thin, the leaves oxidise slowly and develop an especially delicate flavour profile that find their equivalent in the finest highland teas of Darjeeling.
