Who would have known that in little old Perth there is a company that has access to some of the finest teas produced in this great world of ours, from the Huangshan province of China to other select regions of Asia?
Simon Attenborough owner, and founder of High Mountain Tea Co is a name to remember. This humble and down to earth Tea Master has learnt from the very best, for he has spent years living in the Yellow Mountains of China learning his craft.
An amazing selection of loose-leaf tea is imported including black, green, white, oolong and bricks of Pu’er. With Simons Chinese born wife Xia, herself a trained nurse and expert in the medicinal benefits of tea, they happily create for their ever-growing band of customers, strategic conversations showcasing the pleasures of what quality and rare tea can produce including the potential benefits for one’s personal wellbeing.
In fact, seeing the pleasure on a client’s face as their senses become awakened while experiencing the uniqueness and cheer quality of rare teas is testament to the love and passion Simon and Xia have for tea.
The difference in one’s attitude and appreciation of tea becomes strikingly evident after talking to Simon, a man blessed in that he is one of the very few westerners privileged to have learnt from China’s Huangshan tea growers and Tea Masters, knowledge that has been passed down through the ages from one generation to another.
The treasure-trove of exquisite and quality loose-leaf tea including hand-picked and hand-crafted herbal and flower teas provide the perfect addition for the home or office and a perfect gift for someone special.
High Mountain Tea Co can be found at 26 May St East Fremantle WA 6158 Tues-Fri 10am-4pm Sat-Sun 8am-12pm by appointment. ph. 0434 843 770
