Around the year 1000, the Song dynasty ruled China. Su Dongpo, scholar, poet, architect and tutor of the imperial children creates a tea distillate. This alcohol was lost over the centuries. Song Cha, the Tea of Song, is the rebirth of this ancestral recipe.
Song Cha, or the Tea of Song is indeed the revival of the ancestral recipe of Su Dongpo. Song Cha is a real innovation since it is a new product but also a new category in the world of spirits.
It is a brown alcohol but it is not a Cognac or a Whisky.
It is a cocktail alcohol but it is not Gin or Vodka.
It is tea-based but it is not a liqueur.
Song Cha distills 10 fine teas from around the world to surprise tea enthusiasts and spirit lovers. Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong, Keemun, Rooibos… are now drunk on the rocks or in cocktails.
Proof if it were necessary that an innovation can arise when we question the past and not just when we imagine the future.
