  I have fond memories of my time in Hong Kong. During the early 2000s the port city was buzzing with energy and the tea trade was lively. Sadly much has changed since China decided to enforce their authority in the region leading to countless protests and riots. The Covid-19 crisis would add further hardship to the city that has fallen on hard times. My early years of exploring HK were exciting. It was a period of discovery and sensory indulgence that extended to both the tea and the local delicacies. I discovered my love for HK traditional (wet) storage and the many variations offered b ..read more

Handcrafted small batch of traditional Hung Shui Dong Ding   We are living in the midst of high energy prices, and as a consequence the simple pleasure of enjoying a cup of Hung Shui Dong Ding feels like an extravagance. The warm and soothing effect that is the signature of this classic Taiwanese oolong requires a prolonged roasting that extends for over 20 hours. Revisiting this 2008 Hung Shui I am reminded of my love for this old classic. However the tea session also leaves me feeling anxious for the future as many newer versions have been disappointing. Tougher economic conditions c ..read more

The Guide to Puerh Tea
by
1y ago
    "I opted for the name Dragon’s Breath for the trail of mystical incense aroma and warming energy that is the signature of this premium blend. This is a serious blend, composed of old puerh from the 1980s to 1990s that has been meticulously processed in small batches. Upon awakening the dried leaves, a subtle waft of heated incense greets the nose. The richness and opulence of the aroma brings a touch of Kodo "Way of Fragrance" to the tea session. The brew is substantial and thick, possessing sophistication and a depth of complexity that is absorbing. During the course of the tea ..read more

  A different level of ripe puerh tea.   The 1980s Menghai Tea Factory (Old Ripe) is representative of an era of production that was instrumental towards building the reputation of Menghai Tea Factory as the foremost and most distinguished producer of ripe puerh tea. The multiple decades of ageing have clearly honed the dark character of the tea bringing a beautiful refinement to the age brew. The rough and unpleasant fermentation notes that is associated with the “wo dui” process has long dissipated. A pleasant soft mellowness and sublime smoothness can be felt upon sipping the te ..read more
