Eco-Cha Shares Tea At The First Annual Portland Tea Festival

August 04, 2017

The inaugural Tea Fest PDX was an overwhelming success — literally! The festival organizers prepared 1,500 cups like the one above that was the entry ticket to the event. Participants could fill their cups for free at the dozens of vendors presenting their goods. The cups were sold out by early afternoon! The hundreds of late comers were compelled to buy at least a tea cup to replace the substitute paper cups that were offered.

The cups seen above were on display by Friends Of Fire — a co-op of ceramicists specializing in wood-fired tea ware and other lifestyle pottery. Eco-Cha sent them a bunch of tea to brew in their tea wares and offer to the public. We offered all festival goers a coupon code to use on their next purchase of Eco-Cha tea. Below are some more shots of their tea wares on display at the festival.

Eco-Cha looks forward to further collaborations with these pioneering artists of fine wood-fired tea wares, and hopefully we will even get to make an appearance at Tea Fest PDX in years to come. To show our enthusiasm, we will share the coupon code here as well — it offers a single purchase 20% discount off anything in our store! Let's all work together in cultivating a global tea culture!

Sweet, ripe fruity notes balanced by mildly astringent nutty/woody tones. Add to this an unmistakeable honey essence in both the aroma and on the palate. It's a proper Oolong in its complexity, and a signature bug-bitten batch of tea.

A mom, dad, and son team manage their small family farm and process their crops on their own. And the recent spring harvest offered the pleasant surprise of one day's harvest turning out to be Honey Oolong. This name is properly used when the flavor of the tea has a distinct honey character that results from the Green Leafhopper working its magic. The Leafhopper (jacobiasca formosana) is a tiny green bug that likes to feed on the sap of the tender new leaf buds.

As the specialty tea industry rapidly gains popularity around the world, topics like this one are increasingly mentioned in blogposts, newsfeeds, and on social media platforms. Unfortunately, this type of commentary is mostly hearsay, and lacks objectivity. It was just such a post that recently prompted us to offer a more thorough perspective from the industry here in Taiwan.
