Winter Tea Shopping - A Sweet Surprise
Yesterday I visited Eco-Cha's source of Tsui Yu Jade Oolong, Jin Xuan Milk Oolong, and Four Seasons Spring Oolong. These are three hybrid oolong varietals that thrive in the foothills of Nantou County.
I went to pick up the rest of the bulk 40 lb. bags that we had bought some of just after winter harvest. Upon my arrival I learned that my friend had won first place in both the Tsui Yu Dong Ding Oolong category and the Jin Xuan Dong Ding Oolong category in the 2013 Nantou County winter tea competitions.
Hard at work preparing for winter competitions:
He received the rare “Double Champion Award” for being the first place winner of the Jin Xuan Dong Ding Oolong category in two consecutive competitions - spring and winter 2013.
