Spring Tea Trip 2014: Hou Kui and White Tea

Yufei Weng

Shunan hasn’t been able to get internet to send us much but last night she sent a ton of pictures and videos from her phone. She had just left Taiping for Hou Kui and is now in Qimen (Keemun). Next will be Phoenix Mountain followed by a visit to Fa Yu Fa Shi at the South Shaolin Temple. Many of you have been asking if there will be any new monk’s tea and Shunan confirmed that there definitely will be!

Spring Tea Trip 2014: Handmaking Tie Guan Yin and Rou Gui

Yufei Weng

It’s official, Shunan will be returning from China on the 27th! Nicole leaves the next day for World Tea Expo in California and we’ll be sure to share some her experiences here on the blog. In the meantime, here are some pictures that Shunan sent of herself handmaking Tie Guan Yin and Rou Gui.

She picked 3 kilograms of leaves to produce only 1lb of Tie Guan Yin. She made it in the most traditional way possible, foot rolling! Almost all tea is rolled by machine these days.

We’ll have a lot more to share from Shunan’s trip once she returns. Getting internet in China has been next to impossible.

Spring Tea Trip 2014: Tea Worshiping Festival in Yunnan

Yufei Weng

Shunan was visiting Yellow Mountain for Mao Feng for the last few days and has just arrived in Liu An. This is a close city for transfer to the locations for both our Huang Ya and Gua Pian. She had to stand on a train for four hours!  A tea farmer sent her some fascinating pictures of a tea worshiping festival on Nan Nuo Mountain in Yunnan. Check them out!
