Our aged Shai Hong is a unique sun-dried black tea with an exquisite aroma of ripe fruits, berries, and herbal jelly with subtle notes of incense. It's made from wild tea leaves harvested from the ancient tea garden in Jingmai, Yunnan.

Compared to other sun-dried black teas, our Shai Hong has a more complex aroma profile, which will keep you entertained for many tea sessions to come. It's also less aggressive and not as smoky as many other Shai Hongs out there. The texture is beautifully thick and smooth offering a premium mouthfeel.

Traditional method

Infuse 5 grams of sun-dried black tea with 100ml water at 90ºC and apply a steeping time of 5 seconds for the first 5 steeps. Afterwards, gradually increase the steeping time as you see fit.


For cold-brewing you may use a bottle, jug, teapot or any brewing vessel that has a lid. Use 8 grams of tea per 500ml of cold water. Cover the brewing vessel with a lid, and store in the fridge for 5-6 hours.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
