  • This is a PRE-RELEASE.

    These beautiful tea cakes will be for sale in April 2023 (the Spring of the Rabbit).

    Handcrafted from ancient tea trees in 2022, Lau TV highly recommended waiting at least 12 months to drink the tea.

    We (of course) decided to drink some this year... and it's delicious!  

    We've managed to store the rest; the rest, we'll share with you very soon!


    Experience:   .... coming soon.

    Tea Artisan:  Lầu TV  (pronounced 'Lo')

     

    Lầu was born and raised in the highlands of Ha Giang.   Beyond the ancestral tea knowledge of the local Dao people, Lầu learned tea handcrafting skills from his uncle, who lived and worked both in Yunnan and Fujian.  Rooted in tradition but not bound by it, Lầu strives to create tea that will fascinate the drinker. 

    One of those old tea trees.

     

    No fancy equipment, simply delicious 'mountain' tea.

     

    The next generation:  she who enjoys delicious tea, made at home.

    Brewing Suggestions:  pour 110ml of water at 90°C on 5g of tea leaves; steep for 30".  After about 10 steeps, you may boil the leaves in 200ml of water to extract one more, delicious brew.
