A Tea Master's Oolong


by Niraj Lama January 15, 2015 0 Comments

Happy New Year!

As promised here is the first of exciting new things we are unveiling this year - a very special line of oolongs from Taiwan selected by a local Tea Master who we have known for nearly 10 years.  Over the years, we've had endless discussions about tea and swapped our favorites teas.  And last summer, we had the good fortune of meeting him while on a tea teaching mission to America.  He has generously shared his passion and extensive knowledge of oolongs.  And now with great excitement, we are proud to offer a very special collection from A Tea Master's Oolong.

A word about Organic certification for these teas. You know we are very serious about keeping teas only from Organic sources. However, when it comes to these hand crafted artisan teas made by small farmers in Taiwan, it is near impossible to find any with Organic certification. The scale of their small operations just does not make it feasible to obtain certification. So it is in this unique case, trusting our Tea Master friend, we have made an exception. Barring the Concubine Oolong all other teas do not possess any Organic certification but are grown in traditional methods.

We now welcome you to try these exquisite oolongs. I am sure, just like us, you will enjoy and be inspired by them!

And as always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

Daughter of Darjeeling she was...is

On the eve of our daughter’s 13 birthday, I am a little nostalgic reflecting on the incredible journey of our precious girl. Oh, how time flies! It seems like only yesterday when she took her first steps and uttered her first words when we lived in Darjeeling. We could see Mount Kanchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain (on a clear day) from our old British bungalow. Our little girl frolicked in the garden while we drank copious amounts of glorious Darjeeling tea.

One of our favorite teas to sip on when the mercury starts scaling the roof is Baozhong Wenshan oolong. There was a heat wave this past week here in upstate NY, and after a few days of respite, we have another one in the forecast. If you are looking to cool off with tea, reach for Baozhong.
