Dropping preconceptions, Shoshin means to approach something with an open and eager state of mind. Liu Bao is an example of a traditional Black Tea, which may be something you have never tried. Produced in mainland China, in Cangwu County in Guangxi Province's Wuzhou City area, the main characteristic of black tea is a post-production piling. This process this is more akin to composting and involves bacteria in the fermentation process. The liquor of black tea is dark and rich, with a warming Qi that spreads out from the chest. Liu Bao is great for alleviating excess heat, dispelling dampness and clearing the throat and lungs.

Beyond Organic

“Tea started as medicine and later became a beverage”

Provenance matters - the place something comes from and process it takes to get to us. Tea, like all plants, are deeply influenced by their terroir. As tea moved from its birthplace and spread, it changed and adapted as the trees where exposed to different climates, soil and environments. Processing methods have developed over thousands of years to work a long side the plant to maximise its medicinal properties. Our tea is always clean and grown by those the respect this herb. We aim to source tea that meet the following six criteria, however,  sometimes we have to find a compromise, but never on chemicals or stewardship.

  • Seed-propagated
  • Space to grow
  • Biodiversity
  • Chemical Free
  • No Irrigation
  • Human Stewardship


We use all recycled, recyclable & compostable packaging materials.
