Where des our teas come from

Chinese Tea

Natural beauty from single gardens

Chinese tea constitutes a specific group within the tea universe. You have herbal tea, such as rooibos tea, mint tea, and flower tea like chamomile tea. And you also have teabag tea, often packed with crushed up leaves. Sometimes it is mixed with other overwhelmingly aromatic spices and herbs, leaving little space for the essence of the tea leaf itself. But you also have full leaf loose tea, and this is the tea we are talking about. It’s a natural beauty! Chinese full leaf loose tea is a single garden tea, without any additives or post production. It is especially made for tea drinkers to celebrate the distinctiveness and elegance of the tea leaf itself.

Chinese tea all started with a single tea tree plant some 3,000 years ago. It then spread out to different regions across the country. Every region has its own climate conditions, soil quality, and methods of craftsmanship. With centuries of knowledge and development on propagation and production, teas from different regions grew dramatically apart and have developed their own characteristic features and unique taste.

Thanks to its long and winding history, Chinese tea itself already has a full spectrum of tastes and sensations, and you can find almost everything in there. From fresh to dark, warm to sharp, with different texture, light to heavy. Tastes range from floral, grassy, to mellow, nutty, smoky...you name it! And sometimes you can even find a combination of those together in one tea. Like we always say: a good cup of Chinese tea has its own twists and turns.

Our Tea

Never-ending curation

Finding the right tea to impress our customers is a never-ending journey. We constantly work with tea masters for special curations. Being very serious about the subtle flavor differences and the quality of our tea, we test tea from every new harvest season. From observing the shape of the tea leaves and the brewed color, to marking down the aroma, taste and aftertaste. We never tire of brewing our teas multiple times to get a full understanding of their quality. Cha Moods aims to curate and select only the best.
