Chu Lee Guan owner Huang De Chang is a top Teamaster. See the cups he's using to make tea! They look like rice cups and are made of smell-neutral China. Without a cover, they let you see how the tea leaves open and look like.
I live in Taiwan since 1996 and have been studying tea with Teaparker. He's a worldwide tea expert and author of over 30 tea books. The study of tea isn't just theoretical, but it's also rooted in daily practice. It's a path of continuous improvement. As my brewing technique improves I get access to better teas and better accessories. These things go hand in hand. My blog documents my learning since 2004. And I have set up an online tea boutique with my selection of top quality teas, accessories and tea culture.
