Hey BIZTaiwan Attendees!
While in Taiwan you'll notice that tea is everywhere! From the traditional to the modern, tea is deeply rooted in Taiwanese culture. By discovering more about tea, you'll learn more about the Taiwan—the people, the culture, and the businesses.
We've put together this contest to encourage you to look for and share tea while you're here. There will be three winners so you've got a great chance!
How It Works
1. Take photos of anything tea related while in Taiwan.
2. Share the photos on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtags #BIZTaiwan and #EcoChaTeas.
3. We'll pick the winner on July 20, 2015.
Find Eco-Cha on Facebook @EcoCha and on Twitter and Instagram @ecochateas.
How To Win
If your photo has the most shares, likes, or comments, you win! Share lots of photos because the total shares, likes, and comments will be added up! So the more photos the better!
Bonus points: Share photos of anything tea related from your home countries.
What You Win
Our three winners will each receive a thirty minute Skype call with an Eco-Cha founder. We can discuss and offer advice on anything related to entrepreneurship (or tea of course). That includes business development, marketing, start-ups, branding, or any specific business challenges that you are facing or have thought of.
Tea Photo Tips
You’ll find tea everywhere in Taiwan! Look for fresh tea stands, bubble tea, tea houses (both modern and traditional), tea tables in people's homes and offices. Or…just look at the huge selection of iced-tea in 7-11! For an extra challenge just look for the Chinese character “茶”.
Good luck, and looking forward to seeing your photos!

This month's batch of tea being shared with the Eco-Cha Tea Club was made by Mr. Su — an 80 year-old artisan of traditional Dong Ding Oolong Tea. He planted a plot of the Tie Guan Yin strain in his backyard several years ago, and this is the second time we've sourced this tea type from him. Mr. Su is our favorite representative of traditionally made tea in Taiwan, and it brings us a special kind of joy to be able to share his tea with our tea club members.
This batch has a particularly sweet character, with slightly tangy, fruity notes and a pleasantly clean lingering aftertaste. It has just enough of that cured, almost fermented character that makes it reminiscent of a traditionally made Tie Guan Yin Oolong. But given that it was only roasted once, it maintains a mild flavor profile similar to a Hong Shui Oolong.
