New York Tea Lovers Show Up At The Nantou Global Tea Expo

November 10, 2015 2 Comments

On October 10th, Double Ten Day — National Day of the Republic of China, as we began winding down the 6th annual Global Tea Expo, we had the opportunity to host some tea people from New York! Michele, Jo, and Darlene had just attended an international Arts conference and were heading back to Taipei that afternoon to fly back to the USA the next day.

Our guests only had a couple hours to spend at the expo before catching the high speed rail to Taipei, and were clear about wanting to shop for tea and tea ware. So I escorted them through the throngs of shoppers and dozens of tea stalls in an attempt to meet their requests. They were able to pick up some interesting items in the short time they had, and appreciated my assistance in guiding and translating for them in their conversations with the tea farmers they met. Hopefully next time they will have more time to participate in the various cultural events that are an essential aspect of the Nantou Global Tea Expo.

Hi Andy,

It was a pleasure to meet you. I really appreciated you touring us around the market. So much too see, but so little time……

Thank you so much for capturing a quick moment of our face pace visit to the fair. Looking forward to another visit and hopefully a chance to sit down and have some Eco Cha tea.

I’m interested in your tea club. Is teaware going to be included in any of the shipments? I’m a teaware collector and have been looking for a club which includes tea accessories along with tea.

Thanks again,

Darlene

We can see in the photo of the dried leaves above that they were hand-plucked while still very young and tender. This is evident not only by the size of the leaves, but also in the protective fur that is still on the whitish colored leaf buds. It is this stage of leaf growth, along with the heirloom cultivar of tea tree that give Bi Luo Chun its distinctive character among Green Teas — especially when it is from the first flush of spring tea buds!

The earliest days of spring harvest are known to produce the most complex and delicately flavored Bi Luo Chun Green Tea. The leaves have more substance as a result of growing more slowly, combined with a fresh spring floral quality that comes from the plants entering their heightened phase of spring vegetation.

Freshly picked early spring Bi Luo Chun Tea is here! We added Bi Luo Chun Green Tea to our menu just last September and it has gotten a great response. So we planned ahead this year, and took a trip up northern Taiwan to visit the farms and factory as soon as the spring harvest season began to get more.
