There are 2 things I love to do in summer: going to the beach or walking in the mountains. And when I can't do that, I can always combine these two feelings of clear, fresh air/water with my 'blue lagoon' Cha Xi (here, I'm using Da Yu Ling high mountain Oolong!).
I use the third Cha Xi from this article and added some corals on the beige fabric! I found those on the beach of Kenting. The 'crystal clarity' of Da Yu Ling's taste and brew is like the water in a 'blue lagoon'. The result is Paradise!
I live in Taiwan since 1996 and have been studying tea with Teaparker. He's a worldwide tea expert and author of over 30 tea books. The study of tea isn't just theoretical, but it's also rooted in daily practice. It's a path of continuous improvement. As my brewing technique improves I get access to better teas and better accessories. These things go hand in hand. My blog documents my learning since 2004. And I have set up an online tea boutique with my selection of top quality teas, accessories and tea culture.
