Holiday Gift Ideas

November 22, 2019

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!

Alishan High Mountain Jin Xuan Oolong Summer 2020: Buttered Love

June 21, 2020

This batch of Alishan High Mountain Jin Xuan Oolong summer 2020 harvest has a very pronounced buttery character. Starting with the leaves put into the pre-heated tea judging cup, they exuded a pronounced buttered toast/popcorn aroma. But the flavor profile is replete with an uncanny buttered popcorn note, it's almost unbelievable! How can tea leaves do this?! It's not only buttered popcorn either!

This is what an award winning Wenshan Baozhong Tea looks like, in its dry leaf state, of course. Notice the uniformity in the size and coloration of the leaves. The yellow hues are only in the spine of the leaves, which would naturally protrude into a stem, but the stems have been removed, along with the larger, lighter colored, over-matured leaf stock.
