Tea Farm


We get our sakura leaves from a completely organic farm in Ehime. In addition to sakura, numerous other fruits and vegetables are grown there and supplied exclusively with the farm's own specially fermented organic fertiliser. Our Sakura farmer has made it his mission to buy old, run-down farmland in Ehime and transform them into organic vegetable and fruit farms of the highest environmental standards. The cultivar "Youkou" (陽光) used for the tea was specially bred by our farmer's father and has a heartwarming background, which you can read more about below.

Yunnan Moonlight

The tea farm is located in an area above the town of Pu Erh, where a community of the Dai minority lives. Since 2011, the farm has had all the important international organic certificates, but tea cultivation has been carried out without chemical pesticides and according to organic standards since its foundation in 1998. However, tea cultivation has been carried out without chemical plant protection products and according to organic standards since the farm was founded in 1998.



The subtle aroma of fresh almond bread from the fermented cherry leaves (Sakura) together with the delicate rose notes beautifully complement the strong, creamy peach notes of Yunnan Moonlight to create a refreshing and balanced white tea-Sakura blend.

Laboratory Tests

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. Likewise, the regions of Japan from which we source our teas are tested for radioactivity for every harvest.

Cultivation & Processing


We source our sakura leaves from a JAS organic certified farm in Ehime. The cultivar "Youkou" (陽光) used for the tea was specially bred by our farmer's father and has a heartwarming story that has even been adapted into a film in Japan. The former middle school teacher was deeply affected by the impact of the Second World War on his students; although he had promised that they would be reunited under a cherry blossom tree (sakura), he was never to see many of them return from war. With unwavering determination and countless setbacks, he dedicated the next two decades to a very special project: growing a sakura that could grow and thrive in both hot and cold climates. This cultivar was developed not only to fulfil the promise to his students, but also to serve as a symbol of peace and commemoration of fallen soldiers around the world. For more than 40 years, the Foundation has planted more than 20,000 of these cherry blossom trees all over the world - from the Vatican to Madagascar, Mexico to Azerbaijan, the deep pink flowering Youkou Sakura can be found as a symbol of peace and tolerance among nations.

Yunnan Moonlight

The highlands of Yunnan have a generally mild, subtropical climate right up to its altitudes. This is due to the mostly south-facing slopes, which are thus climatically strongly influenced by the Indian Ocean and the Pacific.

This tea is grown in the Wuliang Mountains above the town of Pu Er, far from any industry or main traffic arteries at an altitude of 1500m. In fact, the historic Tea Horse Road to Tibet passes through the tea fields. Traditionally, various comparatively large-leaved cultivars are grown in Yunnan, some of which go back to very old tea plants.

Only the best young buds and youngest two leaves are chosen for the tea, and only a few kg are produced each year. The buds are first pre-fermented indoors according to a secret procedure, and then traditionally sun-dried.


Brewing Guide

3 well heaped tsps per 100-300ml (75°C) water, steep for 3 min. Suitable for several infusions.

For Cold Brew:

Two heaped teaspoons of tea per cup of water in a cold brew pot or bottle. Pour cold water over it and let it steep overnight in the refrigerator.


High quality, airtight, resealable standing zipper pouch with 9 protective layers to preserve flavour and protect against oxidation and contamination.

Recommended Accessories

For particularly aromatic preparation, a Yixing teapot made of natural clay or a black Tokoname Kyusu with a fine ceramic strainer is recommended, alternatively a tall glass teapot (more neutral taste) with an integrated strainer in which the tea can float and steep freely.
