STORY BEHIND THE TEA

This tea is brought to you through a collaboration between Asagaodou and Yumekoubou. It comes in a black box consisting of seven tea bags. Our favourite choice to pair with sweets.

Premium Taiwan Sun Moon Lake black tea is a rare tea from Central Taiwan.  It has a malty taste without bitterness and a wonderful red cup. 

Sun Moon Lake is located in Nantou County and is surrounded by mountains. The average temperature is very stable during the whole year and humidity is very high, which enables the tea leaves to grow rich and intense. 

Collaboration between bamboo craftsmanship and tea memento.

Chikuunsai family is renowned for their bamboo weaving craftsmanship.  They strive to promote Japanese traditional bamboo artwork. The fourth generation weaver family, Tanabe Chikuunsai IV, combines the traditional art concept, Shuhari, with his brand-new philosophy, leading the traditional Japanese bamboo culture to the international art arena.

Yumekoubou, being the exclusive partner with Chikuunsai family in Asia, has invited artist Chikuunsai IV to create a site-specific bamboo art-instillation in Y-GALLERY, Hong Kong, in 2019. Hoping the privilege location of Hong Kong would acquaint foreigners with the energetic bamboo artwork. 

Asagaodou makes use of the idea of bamboo weaving to design a limited edition of tea gift as a memento. Execting the merge of tea culture and arts would bring aesthetics of life to everyone.
