Today, I've added the first spring 2016 Oolongs to my selection. This season is delayed by 2 weeks approximately, compared to last year. The Jinxuan Oolongs have already been harvested and now they are starting to pick the Qingxin Oolong in Alishan.
The Oolong harvest starts at the bottom!
I'll post more pictures and will add more teas next week. In the meantime, I'm going to a tea culture fair in Emei Shan, Sichuan Province!
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.
