Are you ready for a tea journey that's a little less common? For this Exploration Kit, we've thoughtfully curated teas that might not be familiar to some. This volume will take you to two regions on opposite sides of China - Fujian in the East and Yunnan in the West. Focusing on just two regions, would there be more similarities than differences? That’s for you to find out.
What's in the kit:
The Vol. 3 Exploration Kit includes 5 single-origin teas (66g in total) from different regions:
- Sheng (raw) Pu'er, dark tea from Yongde, Yunnan, China (16g)
- Moonlight White, white tea from Simao, Yunnan, China (10g)
- Dian Hong, black tea from Feng Qing, Yunnan, China (15g)
- Jin Jun Mei, black tea from Tong Mu Guan, Fujian, China (15g)
- Qi Lan, oolong tea from Wuyishan, Fujian, China (10g)
Tea Tasting Events & Stories:
Each kit includes a link to sign up for our private virtual tea tasting sessions which run from March 14 to April 24, 2021. Join Claudia, the tea sommelier and Jan, the tea curious as we brew and appreciate each of the teas in the kit together.
Every tea comes with its provenance, histories/stories, brewing guide and simple flavour profile, so you can “explore” them through different lenses and senses. Depending on the brewing methods, there will be 3-5 servings with multiple brews for each tea, perfect for tea experiment and pairing, or simply throwing a tea tasting party. We've included a simple tasting wheel to get you started on your tea exploration journey.
Teakan's goal is highly ambitious. Not only offers great quality tea at a very decent price, but it offers the opportunity of explore a variety of teas each one of them from a different category. They use a simple packaging that seizes the space and the shipping, while they provide A LOT of information online. And not only they provide detailed information about each one of the teas, but they host tea tasting for each tea, one tasting alone would already meant a good use of the price. Therefore, Teakan's kit really is more than a product, it's a very good experience that balance different levels of tea knowledge, either you are newbie or an expert, you would enjoy the process. Lastly, if you only want good tea, this is also your place to go!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Exploration Kit in detail! It really means a lot to us and we're so happy to have you on the journey to explore the world of tea together.
I'm so delighted by the selection of teas in this kit. I'm familiar with many Chinese black teas, but the Dian Hong and Jin Jun Mei in particular surprised me with their unique look and flavour profile. I can't wait for the next kit!
Thank you for the review, Alex. We're delighted to hear that you were able to discover something new in the world of black teas and look forward to sharing our next tea exploration with you.
