This beautiful tea is made from old growth tea from the Sun Moon Lake area. Made with nature and the environment in mind. No pesticides, no fertilizers or watering was used. Better for the trees and the people they touch.

The taste is sweet and grounding. If you don't know what tea to get. Get this one.

Brewing tips:

Elevation is the perfect tea for leaves in a bowl brewing. The leaves are large and sink to the bottom of the bowl fast. Add a dozen or so leaves to your bowl, add water and enjoy! As with every tea, you can experiment with using less or more leaves depending on the weather, mood, time of day etc.

Really solid tea
way better than the preivous red tea that I bought. This just has a nicer depth into it and has a more complex aftertaste.

First order and definitely not the last
Bought here from the first time and definitely not disappointed with the choice I got. This tea is very forgiving to brew and tastes great even without super precise steeping

A must have to have in stock!
Gong Fu Cha, 90 degrees C, 5 grams for 120 ml water. Short (5 to 15 secs) steeps

Dry leaves have a hint of citrus fruit.
Hot leaves also have a hint of citrus fruit.
Wet leaves smell initially smoke, later a hint of cherry and orange shows up.

Thick initial mouthfeel, The taste is sweet, fruity, smooth.
There are some tannins at play, it can have a slightly astringent aftertaste.

Big leaves, up to intact. The extract is a redish-orange.

Final verdict:

Tip: Watch out with the tannins, do a proper wash steep here!

the home button of teas
Elevation is my go-to daily, yet high quality tea! I travel a lot and take a tin of it everywhere, with a bowl, so that I never have to be without tea :)

You'll never regret having a kilo of Elevation at home.
