ATTIC is an acronym for ‘All the tea in China’, a name that not only refers to the wonderful Chinese teas we offer, but also reminds us just how valuable they are. In fact, as the saying goes, priceless.
Interestingly, as the world has sped up and tea production has been industrialised and standardised, in China it has remained largely unchanged to this day. Still harvested and produced by hand using traditional and organic practices, tea is drunk there with reverence, it’s natural whole leaf form allowed to brew slowly and be savoured for its ability to bring health and vitality into everyday life.
Although the rise of the teabag has won out in our nation’s appreciation of this wonderful drink, it has become clear that quantity and convenience always comes at a price and tea loses its superpowers. That is why ATTIC Teas are all of the highest quality, handcrafted and whole leaf. We recommend you refresh the same leaves throughout the day to help hydrate your body and mind and enjoy all the amazing nutrients they contain.
The other reason we choose teas from China is that the Chinese use clever processing methods to create 5 different categories of tea- white, green, oolong, black and pu-erh, whereas most other countries focus on just one. That is 5 very different teas, in taste and action, all made from the same plant.
The beauty of having 5 to choose from is that it allows us to better match people to the tea or teas most appropriate to their unique constitution and individual needs and tastes. Rather than the ‘one size fits all’ approach, we are able to seek out the tea most likely to balance and harmonise each person as an individual. Why not begin your tea journey by trying them all with our Chinese tea tasting kit.
We believe teas, especially those from China, can really help us embrace a more consistent, positive level of health and wellbeing. Why not welcome such a favourable and enjoyable ritual into your everyday life :)
