I invite you to make 2 to 3 infusions with the same tea in the Gong Fu Cha style. This technique allows you to discover the complexity of the aromatic notes of each of my origins, plantations and blends. The ideal tasting temperature for my teas and infusions is 45°c.

What is a Grand Cru tea?

There is no real definition of Grand Cru. We use this term to define products of superior quality. We speak of wines or coffee grands crus. It also fits perfectly with tea, certain varieties being from cultures where the product is respected and where it blossoms in the best conditions to offer intense and original flavours. I offer you an exceptional tea which combines all the assets to offer you excellence: a cultivar of beautiful quality, exceptional agro-climatic conditions and a harvest in the rules of art.

Excellence accessible to all

My desire to share the best products in the world has led me to discover different plantations to offer you a grand cru tea with incredible flavours. But my idea is also to make it accessible, so I have calculated the fairest price to offer you the best quality/price ratio. My goal: that everyone can indulge throughout the day with real good tea in bulk. Forget the tea bags and equip yourself with a tea ball, a tea tong or a teapot. And if you still want to drink tea in bags because it's more convenient for you, especially at the office, you should know that there are empty bags that you can fill yourself.

The different teas

When it comes to teas, it is clear that the choice is particularly wide. I was able to find top-of-the-range varieties throughout the world, particularly in Asia, the land of tea cultivation par excellence, for a real taste pleasure.

Black tea

This is an oxidized tea, a process that offers a better preservation. Note that what is called "black tea" in the West is called "red tea" by the Chinese. Several steps are necessary to produce a quality black tea like Darjeeling or Yunnan: - withering; - rolling; - oxidation; - roasting; - sorting. One of the best known and most widely consumed black teas is Earl Grey, a black tea with bergamot.

Green tea

This time, we discover a tea that is not oxidized, three steps are enough to work the tea leaves and produce a high quality green tea, namely: roasting, rolling and drying. It is the most popular tea among Asians because of its quality and the many virtues it is said to have. One of the best known is Matcha green tea.

Red tea

The one also called " rooibos " is not a real tea. In fact, it does not come from the tea plant, but from a shrub native to South Africa. It is very appreciated for its absence of theine. Indeed, theine can cause anaemia in people who fix iron badly. So people affected by this problem who appreciate the pleasures of a good tea turn to rooibos.

White tea

Here the tea leaf is in its most natural state. Only two steps are necessary to produce a high quality white tea: withering and drying. Very often, white tea is actually composed of buds. This is a fine and subtle tea.

Oolong tea

This is a semi-oxidized tea, halfway between black tea and green tea. Low in theine, it is also suitable for people with iron absorption problems, but who want a real tea. Moreover, theine has exciting properties just like caffeine, so this tea is perfect for those who want to drink it in the evening. It is the fermentation time that will determine the flavors of oolong tea and its quality.

Smoked tea

This is a very special grand cru tea that appeals to tea lovers. Smoked tea originates from China, but it is in the West that it meets its greatest success. It too is a semi-oxidized tea between green and black tea. It is smoked after the harvest on a wood fire to give it a totally unique flavor. Lapsang Souchong is the most famous smoked tea.

Flavored and scented tea

I propose you natural tea to know the real flavours. But I have also chosen to offer you flavoured tea to discover new gustatory horizons. A cup of green tea with mint is the pleasure of many tea lovers. But if it is one of the most talked about beverages, it is far from being the only one and tea lovers are looking for more complex flavours. Red fruit, orange blossom, cinnamon, grapefruit, bergamot, vanilla, passion fruit, the best teas are available in a variety of flavours to create a comforting hot drink.

The power of infusion

Although I have chosen to offer you the finest teas, I have not forgotten the infusion that will seduce most of you. Infusion is best for people who want to drink a delicious hot beverage throughout the day, but who have a problem with theine. It is also a solution for the evening to avoid all excitant. A symbol of relaxation, infusion is a must. Based on aromatic plants or citrus fruits, the herbal tea is available for a tasting capable of seducing all palates. Verbena, the great classic, mint, lime, lemon, lemon-lime, rosemary, sage, thyme, the choice is extremely vast for a natural aroma. Enjoy the many benefits of a vervain infusion or a mint infusion and respect the infusion time, as is the case for tea, to appreciate all the flavours of these hot drinks. Let it brew for a few minutes, I indicate the ideal time in each product sheet. Also consider the temperature of the water, boiling water is not always recommended, do not wait for 100° to remove your water and prepare your tea or infusion.
