wuyi rock-essence teas

crafted in singapore

Wuyishan is the sacred birthplace of the holy grail of teas in China. Leaves harvested from tea plants in the prime growing areas in Wuyishan are acclaimed to possess enviable potential to deliver unparalleled intensity and richness in teas.

Our long and meticulous work begins with managing prestigious tea plants in Wuyishan. Upon harvesting, the precious leaves are partially processed onsite before transferring to our facility in Singapore.

At first glance, our variants of Wuyi rock-essence teas look similar to the traditional tea from Wuyishan. Afterall, the design of our processing is modelled on traditional wuyi rock-essence tea processing.

But with our new concept of actively marrying precise firings with restings of leaves, Wuyi rock-essence teas crafted in Singapore is a departure from the prevailing work by local tea masters in Wuyishan or anywhere else around the world. The differences are evident upon in-depth analysis.

a tribute to

to early generations of singaporeans

In a way, our bold expression of Wuyi rock-essence teas, a kingly tea with Chinese provenance crafted in Singapore with a unique sequence of challenging firings and restings, reminds us how far our generations of Chinese Singaporeans have come.

As part of Singapore contemporary history, early generations of Chinese Singaporeans arrived as immigrants from China and held on to their identity as Chinese in the early days, sending back every penny they earned and saved to China. They went through turbulent times, from the darkest days during the second world war to the early days of nation building. Today, the younger generation are integrated into a larger multiracial whole, uniquely Singapore, though the color of our skin never change.

procedure H
Procedure H applies the concept of combination of cutting edge firing and resting, quite similar to early processing in procedure A, but without going overly adventurous in testing the bounds in dynamics of leaf transformation.

The result is more weight and body, enhanced intensity and richness in flavors, length and strength in aftertaste; texture is velvety and creamy.
fort sanctuary
procedure O
By introducing marathons of meticulous firing and resting, this procedure enables tea leaves to deliver better expression of the terroir. Also, improvements in more subtle texture, finish and durability in multiple brews are evident.
fort sanctuary
procedure V
Procedure V applies a set of precise firing procedures to add intricate variations to the vibrancy of a tea. The effect is a sensation of vibrancies within vibrancy.

This added dimension to vibrancy is an elegant touch of refinement, a serious improvement to the quality of a tea. This original idea provides a rare opportunity to appreciate tea processing taken to the nth degree, evidently and instantly felt.
fort sanctuary
procedure A
Procedure A applies a combination of precise firings to restings, then take the leaves through early aging to deliver textures and colours of teas rarely seen, if not never seen before.

Released as limited editions, procedure A demonstrates our approach in searching to break frontiers of tea processing, shedding new light on the dynamics of leaf development through resting and aging of leaves. However, it is extremely difficult to expect good yield in such dynamic programs designed to test bounds and search for new possibilities.
