Spring Tea Harvest On Lin's Organic Farm
Mr. and Mrs. Lin harvested their spring crop of organic oolong tea today! The early morning fog retreated and offered a clear day for the harvest. And today's unusual weather of a mild cold-front coming in brought a natural air-conditioned effect for the processing of the leaves in their home factory. The yield was slightly less than expected due to the unusually dry growing season, but still produced considerably more than the previous inaugural harvest.
We eagerly look forward to tasting the fresh spring batch, and will keep you posted as the leaves are roasted and are ready to share. Here are a few shots of the morning harvest and early afternoon solar withering.

With the arrival of our spring batch of Taiwan Dong Ding Oolong Tea, we were inspired to brew it alongside our Traditional Dong Ding Oolong as well as our current edition of the Eco-Cha Tea Club — which also happens to be a Traditional Dong Ding Oolong. All three teas were harvested this spring from the same community in Lugu, Taiwan.
