Collection: The Yunhaizhidian Collection


我们坐在山头
看落日,看老挝丰沙里烧荒的狼烟
暮投一座古老的缅寺

We sit atop the mountain, watch the setting sun,
as the tell-tale smoke of swiddening in Phongsali
drifts across an ancient Burmese temple at dusk.

Lei Pingyang

Chen Jian began his journey into the heart of mountains in 1999 and has spent six months each of the last twenty years cultivating relationships with forests, families and communities. From the sublime fragrance and qi of Yiwu huangshan material to the robust character of Lao Banzhang, he has established a standard for premium artisanal tea from Xishuangbanna’s eastern border with Laos (jiangnei) to that of Burma in the west (jiangwai). 

Theasophie's apprenticeship with Chen Jian began in 2006. Every Spring & Autumn for over a decade, we accompanied him throughout Xishuangbanna in pursuit of the highest quality old-growth agroforestry tea. Each of these teas is a potent expression of terroir. Each tea is also a unique chapter in the story of initiation and friendship between Chen Jian and myself.
