Unsolved Mystery Oolong
new fresh winter Oolong and launched a tasting contest to have you find out where it comes from. The prize for the right answer would be 25 grams of Oolong from Da Yu Ling.
This is the kind of test that we often get in tea class with Teaparker or that tea farmers subject you to when you taste a tea with them. They ask your opinion of the tea they have just shared to assess how good your tasting skills are. This will often determine what type of tea they will offer you.
A tea master, however, likes to have fun with his students and show them Socrates' paradox: know that you don't know and you already know something! Tea is tricky and never finishes to amaze me. This was again the case with this Oolong and I wanted to share this amazement.
a trusted and knowledgeable source!
