Pu-Er Tea from 2003 wrapped in bamboo and placed in a basket. This tea can be kept for many many years, and, like a Bordeaux Cru, will improve over time. That's why I bought this basket for my son, who was born in 2003, as I bought also 18 bottles of Léoville Poyferré, second Grand Cru classé.
My name is Stéphane Erler. 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.
