OG+* XS (Xin Sheng) Green loose leaf tea, by Tea Craft. Ethically sourced.

Generations ago, even the most remote pockets of Yunnan teemed with tea plots. Though growers had to carry pickings over long and rugged distances to the nearest factory, they persevered. Even when the returns began to wane due to competition from those closer to town, regional workers did not quit - they got creative and began mixing up their plots with other produce like mushrooms and root herbs. They tried all they could until the early 2000s when the last generation of land custodians got old & the young ones yearned for cushier ways of making a living. So there these old plots sat for over 10 years, inevitably returning to the wild. But in 2016 a new tea production facility was built deeper into Fengqing wild country. This rekindled the passion for growing tea in the area. They knew this time they had to differentiate their product to stave competition so they began producing green-tea instead.

Profile: cross-spectrum green, with a slight hint of raw pu-erh

*OG+ is an initiative run by Tea Craft, which demonstrates their commitment to quality, organically sourced teas that are not reliant on paid certification labels from producers. Tea Craft runs their own tests with NATA approved labs to screen all products for heavy metal traces, pesticides and fungicides, as well as testing for beneficial nutrients. These products may not have Australian organic certification labels, but have been rigorously tested by Tea Craft to ensure that they have been produced using organic principles.

We are loving our first Ooooby box, my kids asked if they could visit [the growers] to thank them for the amazing apples! Too cute. Totally pleased with the quality, quantity and ease. It was like opening a treasure box.
