This weeks show's guests are Vivian and Lorenzo the founders of Eastern Tea Leaves. The couple fell in love with an ancient tea forest ensconced in the dreaming mountains of southwest Yunnan.
Eastern Leaves owns thirty hectares of wild tea plantation land in the mountains, which flourishes naturally in the undergrowth of centuries-old Yunnan high mountain forest.
Their teas are fully organic, and they interfere as little as possible with the growth of their trees. This is the reason they call themselves wild forest keepers rather than farmers.
Alongside their Project in Yunan, they run a tea room/ tea studio in Milan. It is a place they long dreamed of, made of wood, beautifly designed with unique hand-made ceramics from Yixing and Jingdezhen and Suyuan furniture, a bespoke furniture brand based in Beijing.
Eastern Leaves serve tasting menus with fine and rare teas, brewed in Chinese style gongfucha.
