ISSUE

Eighty Degrees Magazine

A beautifully crafted, independent print magazine about the culture of tea. Discover the rich and fascinating world of tea.

ISSUE 01
This issue explores the basics and the origins of tea. Topics include the biggest tea producing country; a visit to a farmer of one of the most famous teas in China—Dragon Well; a fight for the preservation of historic teas; a new book about tea by an award-winning photography master; the beginnings of a revolutionary tea brand that took Australia (and the world!) by storm; and many more!

ISSUE 02
This issue takes us on a journey to Japan, exploring matcha’s “hometown” of Uji, and the wabi sabi philosophy that helps us stay grounded in an age where distractions keep us from self-discovery. We then learn about the destruction of rooibos crops in South Africa due to climate change; the tea scene in coffee-loving Brazil; and the art of the gong fu ceremony.

ISSUE 03
This issue takes us to Vietnam to re-discover the ancient art of making Snow Shan; to Europe to look at various tea habits; to Chengdu's old tea houses in China; through colourful Bangkok; ending up in the Shire Highlands of Malawi. We also go back in time to learn about the Opium Wars, and drink our way through the Russian Revolution.

ISSUE 04
In this issue, we learn about the power of terroir and why it is important to know what we are buying; about the world's most impactful tax cut; about drinking tea the British way and why it might shock many visitors; and about why it is so hard to identify flavours and fragrances, explained by olfactory expert Carine Baudry. We then journey down ancient trials and trading routes with Michael Freeman; stroll through the old streets of Rangoon in search of a traditional Burmese tea; and go on a tea road trip in remote Laos with a monk.

ISSUE 05
This issue looks at four of the most highly acclaimed Chinese teas—China’s green kings; the rivalry between coffee and tea drinkers; how to pair tea with food; and the impact of the pandemic on tea companies. We venture to Kyoto to take tea with a fifth-generation metal craftsman; to Georgia to visit a team of tea renegades; and to the Himalayas to discover high-elevation gardens.

⁣ISSUE 06
In this issue, we explore the accidental but legendary origins of black tea in China; Gwen Chesnais compares the struggles of China accepting wine with those of tea in the West; we examine how temperature affects our brew; and pay homage to humbler leaves. We learn about the ancient philosophy of Kintsugi that can teach us a lot about our modern lives; we drink the mountain with a hermit, but also experience the highest sophistication of tea cuisine.

ISSUE 07
This issue traces the origins of white tea in China; goes back in time to the inception of the speciality tea culture in Central Europe; takes a closer look at what 'quality means' in tea valuations; investigates the origins of Earl Grey tea; explores the working conditions and human rights behind the tea label; celebrates Sichuanese kettle performances in Chengdu; tastes a unique tea creation in Oregon; and looks at some of the false claims of tea marketing.
