Hello Everybody,

 

Big announcement! Our goal of making a video component to our podcast is finally coming to fruition!! We recorded a pilot episode with our cousin Jake a couple weeks ago, and we've published a clip from that episode as a promo here

 

We have decided to publish a full episode biweekly going forward, alternating with a video clip (on YouTube) from that episode on the following week. We're both really excited to see where this goes! 

 

The first full episode will be up in a week from now :) We hope you all enjoy it very much! 

 

Happy Tea Drinking,

Noah & Shiuwen

A great tea! This is an upcoming release, an oolong tea grown in the high mountain region of Wuliang Shan in Yunnan province (home of puer tea). We had a great session capped off with a brief conversation about tea brewing.

Welcome to Floating Leaves, your local loofah emporium! Buy a loofah for your teapot, for your friends' teapots and even for your enemy's teapot. It's good for you!!

*Also, Shiuwen wanted to make sure we made this correction : She did not give a liter of blood, but rather a PINT of blood.

Last week we went back to visit an 'old friend', a tea that we've tasted many times and are just finding out new things about it. This time we visited a 'new friend', also a Furry Crab, and from the same farmer. This one is also fantastic! And we're looking forward to many more sessions with this tea. It is only available on the dot com site.

This episode we tried out some of our new Yixing and Taiwanese Wood Fired teapots. We use Dong Ding Traditional A as a base and branch out depending on how the Dong Ding tastes.

This session we drank a new batch of Charcoal Dong Ding that I brought back from Taiwan. It was roasted in a special way to produce a very unique feel for Dong Ding tea. WE LOVE IT! We're going to be keeping aside some for ourselves to age. And after this session Shiuwen wants to keep even more!!
