I just drank this tea for the first time in a long time… As a shop owner, I suffer from having too many choices sometimes and as a consequence some very good teas go untried for too long. Even though I didn’t drink this tea in my traditional gong fu method, by only filling my mug half full I was still able to appreciate the incredible aromas: apricot and honey mostly. The flavour is light, roasted oolong with a hint of anise and the energy is quite deep when I permit myself to close my eyes. An excellent tea to be sure.

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.
