Shown above is the tea garden from which our January 2023 edition of the Eco-Cha Tea Club was produced. It is situated in the most pristine natural environment we have ever seen in our 25 plus years of exploring the world of Taiwanese tea. Most people in the local tea industry have never heard of it, because it produces such a minimal amount of tea each year.
This is a prime example of what the Eco-Cha Tea Club is about. Our subscription club was created for the purpose of being able to offer singular batches of specialty tea that are not available elsewhere. Many of our monthly editions are procured from crops that are too small to be found on the market. Other Tea Club batches are award-winning teas that represent the quality standards in the local industry. And occasionally we share batches that represent a renowned name of tea, such as Li Shan High Mountain Oolong.
In December 2022, we kicked of our eighth year running of the Tea Club by sharing the seventh anniversary winter harvest from Mr. Lin's organic tea farm. We ran a crowdfunding campaign to support Mr. and Mrs. Lin's establishment of their certified organic tea farm by procuring the entire inaugural harvest. We made a documentary video of this project, which is a portrait of a career as a local Oolong Tea maker in Taiwan.
So the Tea Club is not just about the rare batches of specialty tea we find and share. It's an ongoing story of Taiwan's tea culture and professional tea industry. The blogs we publish with each batch of tea, along with a tasting video, tell the story of where the tea was grown, the terroir and cultivar, the tea makers, and more. This is the full value of a subscription. It offers tea lovers around the world an ongoing education and virtual tour of the world of Taiwanese tea.
If you, or someone you know, has a passion for tea and the vast culture that is imbibed with each sip, your experience will be enhanced by joining us on our lifelong journey in tea.
