Eco-Cha's INDIEGOGO Campaign Documentary Film Release!

July 20, 2015

Dear Supporters of  our "Promote Sustainability — Get Great Tea" campaign,

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding regarding the production of the documentary film that we promised you. It's taken us much longer than we initially thought, but we are now able to fulfill our promise. We can now present you with a short film that documents the organic certification of Mr. Lin's newly established tea farm and our cooperation with him in purchasing the entire inaugural harvest. The film also provides an overview of tea production in Taiwan, and a portrayal of why this is a prototypical case of sustainability in the local industry.

We hope that you enjoy experiencing the story in video, with faces and voices to go with the names and facts, and find the overall content meaningful and informative. We also hope that this film will inspire a new trend of local artisans recognizing the value of their resources and skills in providing a specialty product while implementing sustainable farming and production methods.

This film is a direct extension of our sourcing director Andy Kincart's MBA thesis that he completed exactly one year ago, titled "Sustaining The Product Value And Quality In A Growth Industry: Case Study Of Traditional Taiwan Tea". So suffice it to say that Andy is feeling a new sense of accomplishment in his personal response to the local Taiwan tea culture that has slowly but surely directed his life path over the last 25 years.

Without further ado, we are proud to present Taiwanese Oolong Tea: A Thriving Tradition

Eco-Cha Tea Club: Gold Medal Award Dong Ding Jin Xuan Oolong Tea Tasting Notes

April 03, 2018

With the first brew poured off, the leaves offer a distinctly roasted character with nutty, fruitwood fireside notes. After the second brew the aroma of the brewed leaves turns a bit fruity, with a warming spice sweetness reminiscent of pumpkin pie. The tea has a roasted flavor upfront, followed by a sweetness like grilled fresh corn. Then it moves into a more balanced, rich, complex character and smooth texture. The second visual assessment of competition teas is the purity of color and transparency of the brewed tea. It should be clear and luminescent.
