This month, the Taiwan Post Office is honoring the art of brewing tea with this collection of 5 stamps showing 10 steps of gongfu cha. The stamps are for sale (at Post Offices in Taiwan) until the end of this month only. I have started using them now on my packages and they look great. Some of you will be able to see by themselves.
Avis aux philatélistes parmi les fans de thé: J'envoie vos commandes avec cette plaquette de timbres sur le paquet durant tout ce mois.
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.
