Spirit Tea - Honey Orchid (Oolong Tea)

$20.00

We know you love great coffee, and we do too! But sometimes, you need a little variety. Tea offers a wonderful change of pace with its own rich flavours and calming rituals. Plus, it pairs perfectly with those quiet moments or as a gentle wake-up in the morning.

Of course, we want to make sure you have the best of both worlds, which is why we’re excited to bring you Spirit Tea from Chicago, Illinois! They’re devoted to preserving the purity and tradition of tea, sourcing exceptional and unique teas while respecting the environment and honouring the diversity of tea cultures. Their passion for quality and authenticity really sets them apart.

"The young Eric Chan is one of our longest relationships among our producer partners. Each year, through our continuing relationship, his equipment and processes improve and, with collaboration, it’s been amazing to unravel the possibilities in Chaozhou. Eric, who is third-generation, was specifically instructed by his parents to leave the farm—that they were going to retire and sell the land. He moved to Chaozhou and worked as a day trader, but feeling alienated and burnt out, came home and asked that he be able to carry on the family tradition. They were skeptical, but relented. We are truly the benefactor of this great act of parental disobedience (and prodigal son narrative): many of the trees on his family estate are nearing one hundred years old." — Spirit Tea

Honey Orchid is arguably the most beloved of all dan cong ("Single Grove") styles. Instead of the traditional high firing, Mr. Chan opted for a greener variation, further accentuating its beautiful florality.
