Holiday Gift Ideas

November 22, 2019 0 Comments

The holidays are just around the corner but don't fret, we've already done your shopping for tea gifts for you! In response to customer requests, we've sourced a few new exciting items in our store that make great gifts!

Travel tea set comes with three cups and a 140ml brewing pot with lid.

We found a very nice, super compact Travel Tea Set that offers the perfect balance of aesthetics and function.

We now stock a classic Red Clay Gongfu Teapot that suits all your Gongfu tea brewing needs.

Gaiwan teapot

And here is our personal favorite of an all purpose Gaiwan style teapot that is the most versatile and easy to use Gongfu tea brewing vessel we've found.

In addition to the above carefully selected teaware items, we also have freshly harvested winter crops of Taiwan's renowned High Mountain Oolongs. Our winter batches of roasted and lower elevation teas will be arriving in the weeks ahead, so keep an eye out!

Taiwanese Tea Sampler Gift Pack

If you have someone who isn't quite into tea yet, we recommend getting them our Taiwanese Tea Sampler Gift Pack. Besides having a great representation of most of the different types of teas found in Taiwan, it also comes with a beautiful and very useful portable ceramic Tea Caddy.

Eco-Cha Gift Card in front of some packaged teas and a small Christmas tree.

Finally, we have a Gift Card option that does not require any decisions on which items to choose, and it is instantly sent to the recipient by email, bypassing the holiday rush on shipping!

The holidays are just around the corner, so order now to be sure things arrive in time!

We can see from the brewed leaves above that they resemble an Oolong Tea much more than a Black Tea. The bulk of the leaves still maintain their structural integrity, indicating that they have not been rigorously rolled, like a Black Tea would be. Only a portion of the leaf material was torn and squeezed to expose the sap, resulting in a more thorough oxidation. Most of the leaf material was treated with the skill and tact that an artisan Oolong Tea is made from. We feel that this is a more specialized batch of Hong Oolong in this respect.

Batch 71 of the Eco-Cha Tea Club is a Hong Oolong Tea made by our source of Traditional Dong Ding Oolong as well as our Small Leaf Black Tea. Both of these teas that we regularly procure from this family-run farm are closely related to this month's batch of the Eco-Cha Tea Club. This is the premier batch of Hong Oolong Tea made by this Dong Ding Oolong artisan however, and it exists only because of our encouragement (not nagging!) about trying out a new recipe!
