KUURA Esprit De Corp: 2023 Annual Membership

Esprit De Corp: Tea Club

Since starting in 2017, we’ve been accumulating tea in storage, researching, experimenting, and trying to plan for the decades ahead. Puer is a long game, and we always intended to play it for a long time (better not to begin, but if you’ve begun, best to see it through).

This club will enable us share some ambitious and experimental tea productions as efficiently as possible, and will focus on no-compromise high-end materials, for enthusiast drinkers. We also plan to have a bit of fun. 

Membership is capped at 50 places. 

The 2023 club will contain three 200g puer cakes, as well as other benefits, divided into two deliveries over the year as detailed below. 

Membership Contents and Benefits

  • Three exclusive, experimental 200g productions, sent across two deliveries over the year.
  • Free global shipping on both deliveries, and the ability to hold and add teas from our regular releases to be delivered with your club shipment.
  • An exclusive, specially commissioned tea cup.
  • An exclusive chabu (tea cloth).
  • Priority offer to renew your annual membership in 2024.

Tea and other items from the club will not be available to non-members.

The two shipments will be broken down as follows:

Shipment one, delivered after spring tea season:

  • One 200g raw puer cake
  • Tea cup
  • Tea cloth

Shipment two, delivered toward the end of the year:

  • One 200g raw puer cake
  • One 200g ripe puer cake
  • Some extra exclusive surprises

Membership Terms and Conditions

Only one membership per-person, and a hard limit of 50 memberships. Note: you can purchase additional memberships as gifts, please leave a note at checkout. 

Membership is not refundable, transferrable, or cancellable once purchased. Of course, if there is any issues with shipments i.e non-delivery, damaged goods etc. we will ensure replacement. 

Membership does not auto-renew, so you won’t be automatically charged for the next year or anything like that. We will get in touch directly with existing members at the start of 2024 with the first offer to renew, and if any spots open up we will release those on the store. 

Once purchased we will be in touch with more information about what to expect, as well as to set up your membership details. Thanks to all of our customers for the support over the years.

  • Use boiling water (100C). 

    We recommend approx 1g of tea per 15ml of water for Gongfu-style brewing in a teapot or gaiwan. Rinse the leaves once and then brew several times until there is no flavour left.

    For Western-style brewing in a larger teapot, use approx. 5g per 100ml of water. You can re-brew the leaves a few times.

    To brew direct in a mug, use 1-2g of tea in the bottom of the cup, fill with boiling water, and drink once cool. Re-fill the cup with more water when you've drunk 1/3rd of the tea. Repeat until there is no more flavour left.

  • All of our teas are suitable for long-term storage and aging.

    Keep your tea away from sunlight and strong smells, and somewhere with stable climate conditions.

    You can keep it sealed inside the re-usable bag the tea comes in, or another non-porous container.
