Starting Monday afternoon, I will start a little vacation. Orders placed this weekend on tea-master.com will be shipped on Monday, but after that you'll have to wait a few days or more!
Before my extended high mountain and tea travel, let me share these 2 recent high mountain Oolong Chaxi. Each session is like a 30-45 minutes vacation.
In both cases, I'm brewing my spring 2013 Lushan Oolong. It provides a wonderful energy boost. I often kick myself for not having it earlier in the day!
The blue Chaxi gives a blue sky, Côte d'Azur kind of feel to the tea. And since I know the feeling of having high mountain Oolong on a sandy beach, this sunny setup transports me to the ocean!
With this dark green fabric, the Oolong feels like a walk in the mountain forest. The silver kettle and teapot give maximum sharpness and power to the tea's taste. An hour later, the tongue still tingles with pleasure...
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.
