Wuyi Tea - Why Famous Tea Is Seldom Rare
===============================================

IN THIS ISSUE:

>> Wuyi Mountain Oolong Tea - Unraveling the Authentic Source
>> 2009 Green Tea Update
>> Cold Tea Vs Hot Tea - How Long Can You Keep or Steep
===============================================



Spring time isn't just about green tea. Come May, oolong tea would begin harvesting in earnest. Join me for a trip to the heart of Wuyi Mountain, where the highest quality tea is grown in deep mountain valleys...

Most oolong tea gardens are harvested 4 to 6 times a year. But in this part of Wuyi Mountains, most harvesting take place in spring.

Famous teas are seldom rare. Widely available teas are seldom the highest quality. So given Wuyi tea is famous, where is the Authentic Source, where the highest quality tea can still be found?

Another piece of the jigsaw puzzle fitted as my tea sourcing adventures continue...

2009 GREEN TEA UPDATE

If you are a green tea lover, then there is a lot to look forward to in 2009.

The Tribute Dragon Well green tea will be ready to ship the same day they are harvested - the expected date being March 10. Last year's winter was colder than usual, which resulted in a late harvest. This year's winter seems normal, so let's hope for a timely harvest!

And, there is more good news...

We are looking to launch two authentic quality green teas.

One is a "Near the Source" Taiping Houkui green tea, commonly known as the Monkey tea, grown in a village a few kilometers away from the Authentic source.

This tea is baked rather than roasted - so it would be a refreshing change for people who prefer clean, fresh, vegetal flavors rather than the chestnutty roasted flavors of Dragon Well.

The other tea is a "At the Source" Biluochun tea, or Snail tea.

We have finally identified two tea gardens based in Dongting Mountain, the birthplace of this second most famous Chinese green tea. One is based in the East Mountain - the other is in the West Mountain. It remains to be seen any of these two tea gardens will reach the high standard we expect.

Both of these tea gardens happen to be the friends of HQ's cousin, whose family owns the Tribute tea gardens, so it really is the case of one Authentic tea garden leading to another Authentic tea garden.

It is not a done deal yet, it all depends on the quality of the teas.

COLD TEA VS HOT TEA

Does cold tea have the same health benefits as hot tea? Many people like to steep tea for a long time or keep them in a fridge after making a large pot.
