Packaging Up The Inaugural Harvest: Organic Oolong Tea

December 08, 2014

The tea leaves have now been divvied up into all the shares that were claimed in our campaign and are on their way to Eco-Cha HQ to be paired up with other parts of the perk packages to be sent to our backers. Here we are entering our friend's packaging store in Lugu, to oversee the shipment from tea country to the flat lands. Mr. Qiu's mom chatting freely while his daughter is ready to help:

Daughter and Mom making sure the boss does his job right!

Mr. Qiu's super nice (and efficient) daughter seamlessly assists in the process:

And off they go, three big boxes of tea leaves from the inaugural certified organic harvest of Mr. Lin's farm. The campaign has been successful, and now we can share the yield with YOU, the backers! We'll get all the perks packaged up and in the mail to you this week! Thank you all for bringing this project to fruition.

We've been told it's the soil, and the mid-elevation climate that is most conducive to making a traditionally made Oolong Tea. But in our own perception, it's the expertise that comes from generations of tea making that results in the character of tea that we love the most.

We recently visited Mr. Liu when we hosted a visitor from Italy who was keen on experiencing the local tea culture. Our guest was truly elated to be served tea by a true artisan of the trade. Mr. Liu served us three different teas that were all locally harvested this past spring. They varied only in their degree oxidation and roasting. And the one that was sufficiently oxidized, but only lightly roasted, immediately impressed us.
