    Meditations on Moonlight

    I spent a Sunday afternoon sharing tea with the usual suspects. On the menu was a gongfu of Happy Earth Tea's Wuliangshan Moonlight organic white tea. As we settled into our seats and I got the water boiling, I was really struck by the lovely coloration of the tea leaves and buds. Most tea cakes are quite
    dark brown from the aging process, but the Moonlight has strands of creamy white from the buds intermingled with an almost purple-brown from the tea leaves themselves. Pleasing even before it’s steeped!

    Unravelling Green Mandarin Tou Cha with Family and Friends

    Months ago now, I had a small gathering at my home during which we all shared five steeps of the green mandarin tou cha, and I am only just now finally sitting down to write up a little story about the experience. There were three of us tasting (with interjections from two children here are there), so hopefully our observations connect for you in some way.

  • Taiwan Oolong Teas 2021

    Enjoy Fall with New Oolong Teas!

    What a pleasure to enjoy the above sight with two new oolong teas from Taiwan. The first one is a Dong Ding oolong tea. This highly regarded semi-oxidized and roasted oolong is competition grade and it shows! We drink it gong fu style and through multiple steeps it offers layers of fruity sweetness that turns floral slowly. The roast is perfect - just enough to evoke and sustain a warm coziness in the heart even long after you have finished the tea.
