With the elevation between 800 to 1,000 meters (2,625 to 3,280 ft), the Estate is often covered in morning and evening mists. The cool weather, high annual rainfall of 4,000 to 6,000 mm, and mineral rich soil presents the perfect trifecta for tea plantation producing quality tea.
P U R P O S E
We believe that tea is a conduit for relationships, connecting people, nature and the community. We pledge our relentless commitment in the pursuit of crafting tea of exceptional quality that fully express the characteristics of the terroir; just as nature intended.

As the first rays of the sun breaks through the misty morning dew that blankets over the plantation, the tranquility slowly turns to laughter and light chatter as the pickers weave through the rows of bushes, handpicking only the young and tender leafs.
Under the gentle nurturing hands of the employed local residents, our tea bushes thrive in the mineral rich soil and natural ecosystem, where clean fresh air is abundant and pure mountain spring water overflows. In batches, the young shoots are carefully crafted by the tea master into little morsels of tea, ready to bloom at the first touch of water.
