Had this tea again this morning. All this pu erh is definitely having a cumulative effect. I am sleeping less, I have more energy throughout the day and I can focus more intently on one project at a time. Perhaps this is the cumulative effect of the chi energy? I haven’t changed anything else in my lifestyle, so it has to be the tea coupled with meditation in the morning. Anyway, my tasting notes haven’t really changed from the previous posting the other day. Same steep times/temperatures in the gong fu style; the only difference is that this morning I shared it with my mom, who thoroughly enjoys having tea with me like this. Earthy, woodsy, loaded with chi: my kind of tea.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 1 min, 30 sec

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.
