What's in the kit:
The Vol. 2 Exploration Kit includes 5 single-origin teas (70g in total) from different regions:
- Bai Mu Dan (White Peony), white tea from Fuding, Fujian, China (10g)
- Bi Luo Chun, green tea from Pu’er, Yunnan, China (15g)
- Long Jing (Dragon Well), green tea from Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China (15g)
- Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling, black tea from Darjeeling, West Bengal, India (15g)
- Osmanthus Tie Guan Yin, oolong tea from Anxi, Fujian, China (15g)
Every tea comes with their 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.
This is the second exploration kit that I got after the first volume. Again, it’s got 5 different teas from different terroirs and origins and this time there’s one that surprises me which is Darjeeling from West Bengal, India because it is the only non-Chinese tea in the kit but it is interesting to try using a gaiwan to brew that up and it’s so aromatic. My favorite one has to be the Longjing Dragonwell, the infusions can go for at least 5 rounds depending how strong you brew it, but I personally liked it very very much! It also comes along with Bai Mu Dan White Peony which is very light and floral as well. There’s also Bi Lo Chun which is a Chinese green tea that’s got a umami like Japanese green teas, which pairs so well with Japanese sweets! Then the Osmanthus Oolong I would take anytime throughout the day! The price is so worth it because I’ve personally got these teas individually before and they can cost a lot and take up a lot of space so this kit is great for exploring different batches of teas in smaller amounts so they’re easier to store and also easy to carry around to share with friends on the go, like I did! Go grab one yourself, then you won’t be disappointed!:)
