Freakishly good gallery


Today, we are brewing incredible Imperial grade of Bi Luo Chun alas "Green snail Spring" N.201 tea in one of our brand new cat & fish gaiwan. It tastes like fresh new spring coming to our mouths. With an aroma of orchids, mouth-feel of biscuits & honey and short sweet fruity aftertaste we brew one gaiwan after another. The sun is out and bulbs are coming slowly through, it does feel like spring is just behind the door.

I think we could all use a nice sunny and warm spring soon!

Tea & Run

What makes us run?

It's the gorgeous tea & sun.

Just have a cuppa, two or three,

glance outside and go for spree.

Uphill, downhill along the road

it's up to you - crazy old toad :)

Just follow your path,

and afterwards you better bath!

Drink Tea... Be Free...



Formosa Lu Gu Dong Ding Chin Xin alas Frozen Peak. This is a beautifully rolled green wulong tea. With a hints of orange blossoms, caramel, vanilla and white pepper it is an incredible tea to brew in any time of year. Well balance, light and sweet with a refreshing aftertaste. Multiple brews making this tea superb for longer activity such as painting or reading .... you can really go nuts... over 8 brews easily from one serving :) JUICY!


Happy New Year 2022 !

Let's make this year the best, right?

Could we especially bring the attention to our lovely planet Earth? Nurturing, loving and caring is the way to go! And we are not talking about buying stuff which claim to be the best for earth, we are talking about planting the trees instead of cutting them and do the extra mile with our recycling bin :) Let's also focus on our personal health as if we don't care about our mind and body, how can we care about anyone or anything else? Let's judge less, avoid idiotic influence of social media and live more every minute. Bring your awareness to the self, to the moment and to healing.

Hold the cup of tea in your hand and breath... How does it feel?

So Happy New Year from night run to our beloved mountain Ben Vrackie.

Ben Vrackie 841m

Ben Vrackie mountain in winter. The fresh snow and hard ice on the path made it a little more challenging to run up the hill, but as the sun was shining it managed to warm our toes (most important part if you're running in five-finger shoes) and kissed our cheeks & made us smile all the way up. The way down as any runner can forecast, was very difficult and I'm pretty sure we slid from top right down up to the lake on our buttocks. Beautiful as ever :) Snow everywhere !!!!


December in Bloom

It's cold, dark and windy. Snowflakes are falling heavily just now in the Scottish highlands. The mountain peaks are as white as our pillows and some mornings we also wake up to fluffy dusting in the garden. In the midst of this brutally beautiful weather our tea plants have decided to bloom :)


White Tea cake

A little cycle to Dunkeld and back.

A little detour around the dangerous track.

A little painting with white tea cake.

A little sun rays shining onto lake.

A little happiness for every day.

A little healthiness in the cup if I may.


Tea Blossoms :)

Our tea plants are going to bloom! It's been 6 years now from the time we've planted our little babies into the garden. They have been so good. Few frosts hit them quite hard over the time, but they've always came back like a zombies from the grave to their full healthiness. They gave us so many nice, juicy shoots to make tea from and lots of divine happiness (especially when we open the greenhouse at morning the smell of tea is incredible!) and now after such a long time we even may see the most beautiful blossoms on the earth. Teas are awesome, what can we say we are madly in love with them.



We are so in LOVE with the local peaks. Have you ever noticed, when you're up on the hills, you feel somehow lighter, fresher, happier? Well with current World filled by mobiles, computer and criss-crossed by wifi nets, no wonder you feel that way in nature. All these devices above emits positive heat energy (radio frequency radiation or microwave radiation), harmful in big doses. Nature on the other hand emits negative energy which cools you down and balance all these hours sitting in front of your monster gadgets. Let's run out then and balance ourselves & after that maybe sit next to the nice warm fireplace with a good book and wonderful tea... & smile :) Drink tea... Be free...


Fall & wulong

Is it fall yet? It does look like it already. Look at the cherry leaves, so yellow-ginger and bright, just like our Shui Hsien "water sprite" wulong tea N.409 @shefangtea This little treasure taste like rose, cedar, pear & honey.... Somehow pairing wulongs with autumn feels right. Maybe it's the strong woody, earthy notes in the wulong teas which reminds us of wet, misty autumn earth with the little hints of floral, fruity & green notes which resonates with late end summer days, but surely it pairs well. For us it's even better to enjoy the tea after a wonderful run in hills :) Drink tea... Be Free...


Sun & Tea

Just a random picture from our happy weekend :P

In the teapot is our N.503 Wild tree purple Moonlight white tea which you can purchase here.


"Samurai" autumnal black tea

Here is the final liquid. Our autumnal black tea is called "Samurai". Made in Pitlochry from our tea bushes without machinery, just us, the sun, hardcore rolling and quick bake in the oven. Anything is possible.

This beautifully vibrant cup of Samurai black tea tastes like honey dipped dry prunes and figs. It's smooth and sweet and juicy and we know it's totally organic and fairtrade (lol, my partner is laughing) :P The time of oxidation was a little too short so the tea carries some green notes, but these are pleasant and refreshing. The overall feeling after drinking our tea is a joy.

We are truly sorry we have no bigger land to grow more teas to share them with you, but you can surely try in your own garden :)

Our next task is to make our tea stronger in chi/qi (energy).

Happy times :)

Another day... another harvest

This is our 4th TEA harvest this year. It's the end of August and our tea plants are shooting their beautiful, juicy, vivid green buds up to the sky. They must be loving all the care we provide and the magical nourishing soil of Pitlochry. Perhaps the mountain trolls helps as well, who knows. For sure, we are grateful. :)


Puer & Clouds

Just waiting for the sun :P)


Sencha & St. John's wort

We have some utterly amazing Japanese green teas (in sale right now). Just like this super fresh Sencha in the picture, they are an incredible stomach soothers, nerve calmers considering all the stress watching Olympics and body temperature coolers, considering the tropical weather in Scotland and elsewhere! A perfect choice to drink just now.

The St. John's wort flowers, freshly picked from our garden will be macerated in olive oil and applied to our skin when sunburn :P We are ready for the heat, are you?


Sage & Kekko

These little beautiful purple flowers we harvested from our sage plants growing in the garden (bumble bees loooooves them so we left plenty for them :) We shall now soak them in olive oil for over 14 days and then add some beeswax to create a balm. Maybe few drops of essential oil will be added to it at the end. While harvesting the flowers we drunk our "Kekko" summer tea and listened to the quiet whistle of west wind. It's so peaceful when you surround yourself with good things.

Glas Maol 1068m - Glenshee

Ohhhh, we love this hill,

but you must have a skill

running like a goat on trade mill,

full of power and strong will

ain't no victory without the thrill

you better do it and then chill

no need for bad news, comp or pay the bill

you simply there, free & happy daffodil.


Our "Kekko" Summer Tea

Let me introduce you to "Kekko" our summer tea. We have had quite a rough & long winter and our tea plants got very cold & frosted. We weren't able to harvest and process the spring leaves for our delicious "Mezurashi" tea.

So here is our summer white tea called "Kekko" (means sweet, delicious in Japanese language). And so it is... taste notes@ hay, dried apple & mango, lemon balm and little bit of roasted chestnuts. This tea is 100% organic and hand made from our micro tea garden behind the house! The processing method is very casual... just like we are. Harvest the leaves, wither overnight and bake in oven. Drink with happiness in your heart. Easy peasy :P


The Mountain behind hut

Another wonderful run up to mighty Ben Vrackie, this time we took a different path to reach the top. Path unknown, full of heather, looovely bog, sheep and occasional wild beast of Scotland the almighty DEER! :o)


Tea tastings

Tea... tea...te...t....eeeeee...aaaaa !!

So much to smell, so much to taste, so much to record in our heavy books of Tea knowledge. Samples are pouring in like the falling raindrops in Scotland. The new fresh season is coming soon! Be tuned! Don't miss on our exquisite teas...


Kung Fu Shadow TEA!

Today is one of the darkest day ever, so we have decided to brew a proper master Kung Fu shadow tea. Honey Orchid Dan Cong N.401. Chop kick slice punch :P


Pure bud golden needle yunnan superior N.112

We have just ordered the freshest 2021 season of new Yunnan tea! So EXCITED! Coming soon....

Our teapot "Moss on the Rock" N.925

& Teacup "Acido Philus" N.907 (on the right) are still available in our store.

Sorry ... "Ugly Troll" cup has been sold (on the left).

Shadow game

The game of Shadows is one of our trademark as we like our teas to be "mysterious".


Our cats are a little sceptical to teas, so far they only like ripe Pu Er and Keemun. Keemun reminds them of the roses in our garden which they are so fond of and Pu Er... ehm... I better not try to guess :P

Ben Vrackie mountain 841m

This is where we live and where we source and pack your teas from. What a location right?

"Beluga Whale"

N.926 last one left!

"MEZURASHI" Our home-made tea

Let me introduce you to our micro-tea plantation back in our garden. It contains only 4 bushes of mixed camellias and it's about 5 years old now. We have been making our own teas since 2019 and we are thrilled to say they are fantastic and organic! We named our teas Mezurashi which means "rare" in Japanese.

Keemun N.102

Is one of our favourite Imperial Black teas! Try it now as it's low in stock.

Casual Tea brewing in the garden

Sun, cloud or rain, we do like to enjoy our teas in nature and we highly recommend you to try tea outdoor :)

Different kinds of tea...

Hairy tea, smelly tea, floral tea, woody tea, spicy tea ...

We have them all and they are all natural, pure & super-super healthy. Try one...


Some seriously enjoyable work of art comes into action when you order your teas! It all needs to be tip-top and cutely packed to match the quality of teas. My man has some serious "Japanese perfectionist" problem, but I totally love him for it :P


We have some tea-pets / companions for your solo tea experience if you need. Check out our tea-ware.

Pu Er or moonlight?

We have a moon in our Pu Er tea!

You can find our Pu Er teas under the N.600 and our white teas are under the N.500 @shefangtea

They are all super delicious!


We love to cycle... everywhere!
