Destiny, also called 缘分 (Yuan Fen) in Chinese, is the root of all connection or interaction between things and sentient beings.
We consider that each person who is brought to taste our tea has a special bond with us.
Because tea is a linking element: in China, when we have to discuss something important, it will always be over tea. To speak philosophy, what could be better than an exceptional tea? To release your inspiration... To meditate, think about a delicate subject or relax and unwind. Tea is a central part of life. And something so important and relied upon has to be impeccable in quality, taste and effect.
After having trained in traditional Chinese medicine for several years in Paris, I went to China, to the province of Yunnan, to Kunming (capital of the province) to practice with specialists in acupuncture and pharmacopoeia in hospitals. and city dispensaries.
This trip, driven by a feeling, a search for something higher, led me to a Chinese woman. This woman, tea master, perpetuates a forgotten tradition passed down only to a select few. This tradition is based on very precise rules that derive directly from the ancient Taoist culture (道), today called Dao. This set of techniques applies in particular to one tea: pu'er tea. Today known throughout the world, this very old tea is now protected by an appellation contrôlée and only produced in the Chinese province of Yunnan.
We quickly fell in love with each other and we decided to unite our destinies. We got married in 2014 in Kunming.
Naturally, we sought to connect the cultures of our respective countries and we decided to discover our Pu'er tea in France.
Requirements : our tea is grown according to the laws of nature and no chemical or unnatural substances are used. It is systematically tested by independent laboratories and meets European and French standards for organic farming. A French certification body (FR-BIO-01) regularly checks our teas.
Our tea is produced in the traditional way and by hand. We are regularly on the plantation during the harvests and the stages that follow them. My wife controls every process and adds her magic to it.
Many factors make our tea exceptional and I will detail them shortly.
We want to help you understand our universe and help you penetrate it because it is full of hidden treasures.
