The Current Issue: June 2020

Ginbin

This month we cross the zenith of yet another spectacular year sharing tea. We will be drinking a rare and precious wild red tea that is its own species while we discuss the history, glory, art and craftsmanship of traditional Japanese silver kettles, which are called “ginbin.” The tea world truly has so much to offer!

June Tea of the Month

Shan Cha, Wild Red Tea
Nantou, Taiwan

This amazing tea, called “Mountain Tea (Shan Cha, 山茶)” by locals, is said to have been drunk long ago by early settlers. Some aboriginals claim that it was the “Tea of the Gods (Shen Cha, 神茶),” drunk by their ancestors in ceremonies. These tea trees are actually the ancestors and heritage of the manmade varietal we shared in January of 2020 called “Ruby Red (紅玉).” That tea, also known as “cultivar #18,” was bred using Shan Cha and Camellia sinensis var. assamica from Burma and/or Yunnan.
