This video will show you a quick take of a tea plantation in Shan Lin Shi around 4 PM on June 23, 2006. Over 1000 meter, the silence on this high mountain tea plantation was only broken by the song of a bird. The weather was partial cloudy and foggy and I could even hear thunder in the distance.
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.
