I tried this tea after a long hiatus. It practically jumped off the shelf at me this morning when I was deciding what to have before breakfast. I heated my water, prepared my yixing teapot which has been seasoned for aged oolongs, got out my gong fu cups and promptly forgot about the world with the first several inhales and sips of this tea. I really do enjoy oolongs, they all have such a rich depth of flavour and aroma. The sweet, honey notes were well pronounced in this one, especially in aroma and the taste was velvety smooth with a hint of roast as it went down. And the energy was potent. Somehow 30 mins disappeared and I nearly missed my bus. I still had to iron a shirt and pack my lunch but caught the bus in the nick of time. What an excellent tea! Except now I’m all spacey at work. Hopefully no-one notices…

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.
