After 12 years of learning with Teaparker, 10 years of blogging over 1600 posts, I have written a short guide of 16 pages (5000 words) to help you brew Oolong tea. My goal was to summarize my gongfu cha technique and tricks in one document. Some of the content has appeared here or there on the blog before, but there are also new insights that should interest both beginners and advanced brewers.
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.
