This Sampler features 5 baked creations from our resident Teamaster. She does have a name: Yuwen, and she is one of the curators of this catalogue as well as being a direct contributor to all of the baked renditions in it. She is not a person of many words. She much prefers to let her work do the talking. This sampler set proposes 5 of many new freshly baked lots that were produced during the Fall of 2017 as this is a good season to do so; after spring teas have mellowed nicely. Tea baking, often referred to as roasting, is a highly skilled craft in itself with the aim of highlighting the intrinsic aromatic and flavourful elements of the tea where nutty and spicy notes are highlighted with caramelized sweetness. We will use no further words to describe the teas and simply invite you to experience them as I do think Yuwen is right: one must be silent and listen carefully to what the tea has to tell you! A unique experience awaits you!
This sampler tin includes the following teas in 10 g formats, each vacuum-sealed in their individual bag with de-oxidizer to preserve freshness and packed in our New Woven Fabric Tea Caddie.
