I've visited Mr. Wang last night to buy more roasted the Tie Guan Yin and Shui Xian I've been telling you about this week. They are his babies! You can see him in full action, brewing a gaiwan of very strong Tie Guan Yin for me. That's how he likes his favorite tea. No day goes by without at least 10 brews.
He's past 80 years, but still enjoying every drop of tea and every day under the sun!
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.
