Solving Problems Every Tea Drinker Faces

>>Tea Is For Balance, Not Just Antioxidants

If you were a long time newsletter reader, you probably remember the November 2010 newsletter entitled "Two Rules to Drinking Authentic Chinese Tea".

There were two things I was trying to get across.

First, drink in moderation.

If you are drinking high quality tea, you need only 3 cups a day to stay healthy. This is because Authentic Chinese Tea is highly potent, you only need a few grams of tea leaves a day.

(You can drink more, of course. But over the long term, like all thing else, it is safest to drink in moderation. Tea is good, but it is not water, it is not an exception.)

Second, diversity your tea intake.

Although white/green/yellow teas contain the highest level of antioxidants, they are cooling. As the winter approaches, one should drink more of the dark oolong/black teas for balance.

See newsletter below for explanation between cooling and warming teas.

Newsletter #37: Two Rules to Drinking Authentic Chinese Tea

An Wuyi oolong tea is dark and roasted. It is more similar to black tea than green tea. The liquor is a rich mellow: dark and charcoal, with an overlaying floral aroma.

A good Wuyi tea can be infused up to 3 to 9 times (depending on grades). It makes you feel alert and refreshed.

Being roasted, the tea can be stored in a cool and dry place for a few years. You are in no hurry to have to finish it.

Anyway, if you haven't tried an Wuyi oolong tea before, then the Wuyi 7-in-1 Sampler ($25) is a splendid introduction, featuring the best of Wuyi teas.

If you want something better value (biggest bang for your bucks, many customers like to say), then you should start at everyday grades such as the Rougui A grade ($11) or Shuixian A grade ($12).

(Shipping is still free, so you can't go wrong with small orders.)

However, if you are more ambitious and want the best of our offerings, you may be delighted at this special offer!

Laocong Shuixian Oolong Offer!

Do you know which is our highest quality Wuyi tea at present?

It is this Laocong Shuixian AAA grade ($30).

The word Laocong means Old Bush. The AAA grade tea leaves are plucked from old tea bush more than 15 years old.

Shuixian means Water Fairy. It alludes to the special quality of a Shuixian tea. The liquor is smooth and thick. The fragrance is light (more like green tea), elegant and lasting, quite different from the intensity of the Dahongpao or Rougui.

Shuixian Oolong Tea (Water Fairy) - Tarzan of Wuyi?
