Eco-Cha Presents For Taichung City Government
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.

The prominent features of this batch of tea are the growing region, the farming methods, weather conditions on the day of harvest, and the degree of oxidation in the leaves in their processing. These factors offer us a premium quality High Mountain Oolong Tea.
The brewed tea offers a creamy, soft pine aroma with a smooth, savory/vegetal character that is very satisfying. It has a lingering, thick yet mild floral aftertaste, with a touch of heady spice. It's this integrated composition that we have come to appreciate most about High Mountain Oolongs. When there is sufficient complexity, combined with a thick, smooth constitution that actually shines the most after it has cooled down, it rates high on our Oolong score chart!
