Floating Leaves Tea
Homestyle Red Oolong

Homestyle Red Oolong

June 14, 2021

This was a laid back session. Shiuwen got a chance to brew the new Homestyle Red Oolong for the first time. We are both really excited about this tea! As the name indicates, it's not a fancy tea per se, but it's a satisfying whole body experience. Now available on the dot com site only!

The Land of Milk & Honey

The Land of Milk & Honey

Yes, we're talking about Dong Ding again; the region that gave us Milk & Honey Oolong. Which we are drinking in the episode today. We went back to talk more about Mrs. Su and living up on the mountain.

Also, we'll be drinking high mountain oolongs live on YouTube (Tuesday June 8th, 5pm PT). Hope you can join us! Link Here

Taste of the Place

This episode was basically my first impressions after spending a week up on Dong Ding mountain. The taste of the place is still fresh in my mind! I had such an amazing time, learned a lot and worked hard.

Shiuwen received her Lala Shan in the mail, so this session we decided to drink that tea! New crop of Lala Shan Hong Shui. 

Three High Mountains

We took some time to explore three of the four high mountain oolongs I've chosen for the website, since Shiuwen's Big Box of Goodies arrived in Seattle recently. We drank Alishan, Shan Lin Xi and the Traditional High Mountain, a tea that I was able to see be processed start to finish. We are both really happy with this season's high mountains! All very fragrant, balanced and comfortable in the body. Looking forward to the Lishan arriving in Seattle so we can drink that one together, too!

The Path of Learning

The night before we recorded this episode, I went to go visit our teacher for the first time since arriving in Taiwan. That's the real fuel for why I'm here, to study tea roasting. It's the guiding principle that has kept us on track through lots of craziness. It was a great session, and I got a chance to unpack it a bit with Shiuwen on this podcast. Enjoy!

Traditional Oolong Processing

This episode was recorded shortly after I came down from the mountain, where I saw my first full oolong processing, start to finish! It was amazing, and during the recording I was still full of all that good energy. The style of the episode was more of an interview style. I got a chance to relay lots of information I learned up in the mountains! We will be selling this tea on our website in the next few days. Shipping direct from Taiwan!! If I wasn't here I never would have found something like this!

Thank you all so much for your support! We love you :) We're getting ready for Noah to head out in a couple of days, and we're so excited!!

The next episode will be recorded long distance, with Shiuwen in Seattle and Noah in Taiwan. We've got to figure out how to do that, so expect some glitches. But it will happen.
