We are excited to present our designer gift sets that offer a selection of quality unroasted and roasted Oolongs, as well as Alishan High Mountain Black Tea. These fine teas come in paper caddies and are elegantly presented in our laser engraved wood boxes.
A pictorial booklet with information about the source of these Taiwanese specialty teas is included. The booklet is neatly inserted into the dividers between the caddies. The box can be reused to store more of your favorite teas or anything else you like. The lid glides on and off smoothly and seals shut with the help of embedded magnets. This sturdy, matte-black box is appealing in both its look and feel.
We continue to be captivated by the character of Batch 67 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club. From the appearance of these dried leaves above to the color of the brewed tea, and of course, most prominently — its flavor profile, it's a unique tea. This is what we most appreciate about the Club — finding something that we truly excited to share. The flavor of this tea is not something we can say we have had before. It really has a lot going on!
Eco-Cha first met Mr. Zhan in 2016, when we smelled tea being roasted beside the historical train station in Shuili — one of our favorite mountain towns in central Taiwan. We learned that he had been transitioning his family tea farm to natural farming methods for several years already. We said that we looked forward to learning more about his work, and hoped to have the chance to procure some tea! Well, some things take time... and 5 years later, here we are — finally able to share a batch of his tea with the Eco-Cha Tea Club!
This year's second crop of Alishan High Mountain Jin Xuan Oolong began to be harvested last week, before rains that lasted several days. Then resumed earlier this week. We first visited our primary source of Alishan High Mountain Tea to taste their first two days of summer harvest.
