I have got to stop pairing such energy potent teas. I’ll never sleep tonight at this rate. It was a crummy day at work (online tea companies don’t pay my bills, as awesome as that would be so I took a full-time job as well) so I decided on an intense tea session. Started with the 20 year old oolong, one of Cloudwalker Teas more popular teas. I have to pretty much agree with my previous post, except to add that if you’re feeling down and in the dumps, this tea will pick your energy right up and flip the negativity the other way. I’ve always been amazed at this. I think the energy of this tea paired with the gong fu ceremony and meditation really is good for the soul. So there: a soulful tea of complex flavours and aromas.

Billowing sail, yes . . . there is a definite nautical aspect to this tea most definitely brought on by the careful ageing. Nice one, a delight to the senses . . . thanks for making this available!

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a kid when I used to have a strong cup of Earl Grey with my Grandmother. Six years ago I went to Taiwan, met a tea master and have been really appreciating Chinese tea in the gong fu cha tradition ever since. I even started a small online company selling the teas I can procure from tea masters in Taiwan and China. Can’t find a good aged pu erh? I’ve got it. Don’t like the cliff tea you got online? I bet I’ve got a better one. Want to try some different kinds of oolong? Got those too. I’ve got lots of gong fu tea brewing accessories as well.

Also, if you ever have a question about tea, accessories or brewing, I’d be happy to answer them. If I don’t know the answer, I’ll look it up! I have access to a wide range of tea literature that is out of print which I collected while in Taiwan.

Cloudwalker Teas is quite literally a two-person tea distributor. We believe in the teas we bring to the world through our online store are better than anything at almost every other place. We are tea purists, which means we don’t believe in mixing teas post production. A pu erh is simply that, pu erh. A green a green, oolong is oolong. We believe that teas have so many naturally different aromas and flavours that it is a shame to cover them up with flavourings and flowers.

When we review a tea, we take into account three components: aroma, flavour and chi energy. A good tea must have all three of these components to be considered at our store.
