HEMEL haute couture brewed tea was created to deliver an unexpected tea experience to the world. We use only the most rare leaves, rich in individual variations, from prestigious tea plantations. Our quest for blended teas began when we realized that each and every flavor of the teas, formerly dormant, was galvanized upon boiling, becoming more apparently and beautifully contoured when we blended them based on a certain balance. In our highly refined bottles you’ll encounter premium extracts produced drop by drop over a long period of time. Clear. Abundant. Rustic. Floral. Spicy. Enjoy these teas by attuning your senses to each developing feature.

From small tea fields
小さな茶畑から

HEMEL is establishing strict guidelines not addressed by existing selection standards. Of the tea leaves sourced from several prestigious plantations that have won the highest gold award in tea competitions in Taiwan, we carefully select less than the top 20% of the high-quality leaves grown in these environmentally blessed fields. We choose the best few days in the picking period, harvest each soft bud gently by hand, and process the tea by hand rolling it.

The best raw materials
世界最高峰の原料

The numerous and varied tea leaves, brought into Taiwan’s blending lab, are blended by skilled masters and tea sommeliers, who draw out their hidden individual characters. Heeding and reading the unique traits and terroirs of the leaves themselves, conducting hundreds of tastings, they discover artistic matches among the various leaves most suitable for haute couture brewed tea.

Haute couture extraction
オートクチュール・ブリューイング

The extraction process that determines the quality of tea is precisely controlled by leading technology and the fine aesthetics of skilled tea masters. We make detailed analyses of temperature, humidity, time, water qualities and pH value in accordance with the character of the delicate hand-picked teas. We carefully determine the extraction method depending on the type of tea, spending five to seven days deliberately extracting the tea at a low temperature.
