Eco-Cha Presents For Taichung City Government

April 14, 2016

Andy was recently invited to present at Taichung City Government's international creative industries seminar that focused on promoting its local specialty products. As tea is Taiwan's primary local specialty, and Eco-Cha is becoming recognized as a leader in representing this product and culture on an international platform, Andy was happy to share his 25 years of experience of Taiwanese tea with Taichung's professionals and government officials.

Andy mostly related how his growing interest and love of Taiwanese tea and tea culture that began in 1990 led him to where he is today. The local tea industry that he began to immerse himself in over 20 years ago has become the central focus and passion in his life. After telling his story and offering his suggestions to the attentive audience, there was a Q&A session with the audience. At this point, Eco-Cha's co-founder Nick Fothergill was asked to join the discussion to offer his perspectives regarding Eco-Cha's mission and goals.

It was a rewarding experience for everyone involved, and Andy was left feeling honored and fulfilled to be able to offer a response on a professional level to the local culture that he has come to know and love. This is a significant part of his personal commitment to representing Taiwan's tea and tea culture to the world at large. Andy is compelled to provide the local tea farmers and tea professionals with an international model for them to be inspired and encouraged by. This event was the latest development in fulfilling this personal and professional mission.

With the first brew poured off, the leaves offer a distinctly roasted character with nutty, fruitwood fireside notes. After the second brew the aroma of the brewed leaves turns a bit fruity, with a warming spice sweetness reminiscent of pumpkin pie. The tea has a roasted flavor upfront, followed by a sweetness like grilled fresh corn. Then it moves into a more balanced, rich, complex character and smooth texture. The second visual assessment of competition teas is the purity of color and transparency of the brewed tea. It should be clear and luminescent.
