Issue #98: Green Tea Season 2019 Has Arrived - and it's Good!

The 2019 green tea season is upon us and yes - it is goooood. Temperature has remained low during early spring, allowing the tea buds to grow slowly and picked off in an orderly fashion.

It is certainly not in the same league as the 2016 ("Best in Five Years!") or 2015 ("One of the Best"), but certainly better than 2017 ("Heavy Rainfall") and 2018 ("Warming up too quickly").

Issue #97: Trade War and Nostalgia

As a tea seller who lives in the UK and sells tea out of China for the last 12 years, I have to say this: "Make hay when the sun shine!"

"Good things don't last forever" and as far as world-class chinese teas are concerned, it'll get harder and harder to come by. We need to appreciate what we have today.

The topic of the day - of course - is the US-China trade war. It has the potential to derail and totally destroy this business. Why? Because most of our customers are based in the USA. Significant changes in tariff and international postal tariff would greatly increase the cost of our American consumers, making the business unviable.

Issue #92: Wuyi Oolong Tea - An Introduction

If you are a tea lover, it is difficult not to get excited about it. Here are some amazing facts about the mountain and tea:

The Mountain is regarded as the richest depository of tea varieties in the world. Wuyi tea plants even have their own name - Var Bohea.

A Unesco heritage site since 1999, the mountain is renown for its biodiversity.

Biologists have been busy conducting field research there since 1873. They have identified nearly 4,000 plant species and 5,000 animal species.

Despite the biodiversity, the Mountain is small - it is just a mere 60 kilometer square. Can you imagine how precious an authentic Wuyi tea is?

Well, William, sorry for my late reply. Here is it - if you are reading this issue of newsletter!

Which is better, loose green tea or matcha?

Popular wisdom says when you consume green tea whole, you get more of the antioxidants than regular green tea.

To prove their points, matcha sellers often cite a 2003 study conducted by University of Colorado, which found that it contained 137 times as many antioxidants as a popular green tea beverage.
