Who are we?

Our concept: To be as close and true to the teas we offer.

These ideas are the result of a history and experience of living over the years. The direct and continuous contact with the families of tea growers, the in-depth knowledge of the methods of elaboration and terroirs, participation in the manufacture of our teas as much as possible are at the heart of our work.

Aude Frère and Dominique Charriez.

Artists photographers, passionate about Asia, present in Yunnan since 2005, we decided to produce Pu'erh cakes under our own brand to make you share "in the cup" our passion for tea, old tea trees, our meetings, our favorites.

Over time, almost 20 years, you have enjoyed more than 250 original Pu'Erh through our selection : teas from farmers or made with them. We expanded our range to Yunnan other teas and to other chinese areas following our travels and discoveries.We are committed to offer certified organic or natural teas. Have a look on our selection in The Shop, our articles on tea, travel notebooks and photo galleries in the Blog

An example of our photographic work

"Terre de Ciel Pu'Erh Teas" - "Tian Di" in Chinese

Each season, we select Mao Cha elaborated in a traditional and artisanal way by some families we know and have them pressed. We produce small amounts of quality cakes whose origin we guarantee. Making our own Pu'Erh also allows us to offer small pieces (100 or 200 gr). We bring back special cakes made by our partners. We also evolve in the exciting world of Yunnan other teas: famous black teas, green and white teas sometimes less known, not to mention the fascinating oolong teas (Fujian, Anhui)
