Twice a year we arrange an express course consisting of 10 unique classes to give a complete idea about tea, high tea culture and tea industry. The autumn course is always special, which is primarily because we have a lot of fresh green and white tea. For the last six years, we have been striving to immerse participants in the culture of the East with love and passion, trying to cultivate a sense of beauty. We have been improving our program for more than 6 years in order to fit in the maximum of the most necessary information, offering the students extensive tea knowledge. We will be happy to show you an amazing world of ancient traditions.

Tea Reviews
Enshi Yu Lu
This gentle green tea is very special due to a few very interesting facts. This tea has more than a thousand years of history. The production process was revived in the late 1990s and since then the processing of this tea has been listed as an intangible cultural heritage on a national level. Wufeng mountains, as well as the whole Enshi country, are famous for the unique chemistry of soil rich in selenium. In the human body, selenium interacts with vitamins, enzymes, and biological membranes, and participates in the regulation of the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, as well as in redox processes. One more thing is that this tea is being steamed instead of wok-fried like most Chinese green teas, which results in a unique aroma and taste. The first spring harvest and the unique processing methods make this tea very high quality.

Gyokuro "Jade Dew" 
Exquisite green tea from Japan, which is considered one of the most unique and refined teas in the world. Due to a special growing, harvesting method, and production process, this tea has a unique flavour that cannot be found in any other green tea. This tea is made from the highest quality spring harvest. Approximately three weeks before plucking, tea bushes are shaded from the sunrays, which reduces the content of alkaloids (theine) in the tea leaf and increases the content of amino acids (theanine), which has a tonic effect on the human body. Carefully hand-plucked, steamed, and traditionally processed, this tea has an intense and rich aroma and taste. This one is made from a special blend of two cultivars, Yabukita and Okumidori, which makes this Gyokuro quite unique.

Laobanzhang Gu Shu Sheng Pu'Er 2017
Laobanzhang is a legendary village, located in the Bulang mountains, Menghai area, Yunnan province, China. Altitude is 1700-1900 m above sea level. The unique climate, high altitude, soil, and humidity create an excellent environment for the tea trees' growth, which results in giving this tea a special character and taste. Nearly 200 000 ancient trees have been grown here for hundreds and even thousands of years. There are at least 9000 tea trees older than 800 years old. Pesticides are forbidden there by the law, and the local people grow tea organically, following old cultivating and harvesting traditions. Due to a limited quantity of raw leaf materials, the price is getting higher each year. The annual harvest is about 50 tons. It is becoming increasingly challenging nowadays to get an authentic Laobanzhang, therefore, I'm very happy to share with you this unique tea. This tea is incredibly famous for its unique, intensive, long-lasting flavour and strong Cha Qi (energy). Rich taste with multifaceted notes and tones.
