Elevation is made from old grown trees. The large leaves offer us the chance to return to the foundation of our tea practice: leaves in a bowl with hot water. Drinking a very simple, humble tea together reminds us that we aren’t here for fancy flavors or great experiences; we are here to learn from Tea and from each other.

Elevation reminds us that Tea is Tea: a simple leaf from the forest, here to remind us of our connections to Nature, to ourselves and to each other. Elevation is simple, bitter and astringent—closer to the nature of the leaves on the tree. This is the quintessence of a “daily tea,” one that becomes a friend through thick and thin. 

Origin: Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan

Brewing method: leaves in a bowl, sidehandle

Brewing tips: This is a very forgiving tea. You can brew it with very hot water. Remember to try brewing it in the simplest way - leaves in a bowl (or mug!).


Your tea will come in a charming kraft paper bag packaging.

If you would like to upgrade to a deluxe tea caddy, please add the tea caddy to your order, then include a note or send me an email right after placing the order. In the event that your tea exceeds the capacity, the remaining portion will be packed in a kraft paper bag, providing a convenient option for easy refills.
