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

August 03, 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!

This is the first sign that it is a traditionally made Oolong tea. In recent trends, tea made in this fashion has been given the name "hong Oolong" or Red Oolong. It's actually just a new name for an old recipe.

Eco-Cha Tea Club: Red Oolong Tea

This is what inspired us to share this batch of tea that was produced in Nantou County. We consider this batch of tea to be properly named Red Oolong, simply because the leaves are obviously only partially oxidized. The flavor of the tea has aspects of a Black Tea character while maintaining the fragrant, aromatic complexity of an Oolong.

The Science of How Tea Can Prolong Our Lifespan

Drinking tea can actually help protect the health of our DNA, which can prolong our lives. Research has shown that a healthy habit of tea drinking may extend our lives up to five years! 
 
A large group of older Chinese men who drank 3 cups or more of tea daily recorded longer telomere lengths, and almost five years of added life, compared with people who drank one cup or less. The study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, applies to green and black tea.
