Variation in Asian Blue
A big thanks for my mother for having sensed all this and created this fine quilt for me!
For the first Cha Xi on it, I chose a Hung Shui Oolong from Shan Lin Shi. Here also, this tea embodies the modern innovation of Taiwan's High Mountain Oolongs, but combined with the traditional charcoal roast that can be traced back several century ago in the mountains of Wu Yi. I'm combining old qinghua plates, a modern qinghua jar replica (using traditional techniques) and David Louveau's cups with stand (which are inspired by Yuan dynasty cups).
