An Update on this Spring's Oolong - Spring 2014

A couple of days ago, I was talking with one of Floating Leaves Tea buyers, Mr. Tsai, about our Baozhong. So far, he thinks this season's Baozhong is better than last season's. I am excited! He will go out to Farmer Chen's place and get us some Farmer's Choice Baozhong. He is hoping to send it out this Wednesday or Thursday. Our Spring Baozhong might arrive by the middle of May!

Our Dong Ding Traditional will be return to our tea lineup. It is scheduled to arrive around mid-May as well. I can't wait to taste this tea. A traditional Dong Ding is one of my favorite Oolongs from Taiwan.

Our other tea buyer, Rob, will be out next week to look for some good High Mountain Oolongs. Stay tuned. I will have more Spring Oolong updates soon!

I remember the first time I tried dong ding, I had an "okay" one but didn't think it was anything special. I moved onto higher mountain teas, thinking that elevation was everything ... the higher the better. But then I tasted your traditional dong ding and it completely changed what I thought I knew about that tea. So fruity and great mouthfeel. Easily one of my top favorite teas ever :-)

Can't wait for it to come in!
