Fu Dao Newsletter – Autumn/Falls 2014

September 23, 2014

Dear Tea friends,

We finally got new tea of this year’s harvest and it was really worth waiting. After lots of admin problems having to finally get the tea tested at the border, I realised how demanding it is to maintain a high quality.

However to be honest with you, I started having fun at the moment I opened the packages to taste it! Instantly, I forgot all the import trouble and let the scent of fresh harvested tea overwhelm my senses.

LSYW_DoseSo I’m proud and very happy to tell you that this year’s tea is exceptionally good! The “new acquisition” Lu Shan Yun Wu has gotten me convinced that taste primes over name.

Lu Shan Yun Wu is naturally fragrant, brightly coloured and with a grassy taste. It comes from the lush green mountain region Lu Shan, which is where its gets its name from – Yun Wu means clouds and mist. The leaves are particularly young and tender when picked, giving it an exquisite, mild and slightly flowery aroma. Like the hazy clouds that drift around the Lu Mountain, it envelops us with its unique bouquet, incredibly delicate and yet with a lasting sweetness. A divine tea for special occasions.

Furthermore, we’ve got a new limited edition; an organic Pu Er Cake that is also worth trying. This exceptional ripe or Shou Pu Er (or Pu-erh) is made from wild Mao Cha. After drying, fermented tea is lightly steamed and pressed into a cake. This characteristic hand-made ‘tea cake’ is about 2 cm thick and weigh about 200 grams.

31_0We also are planning some tasting events. Two tea tasting workshops will take place on the 2nd and the 23rd of November 2014.

This workshop is a modern incarnation of Tea Tasting and provides you with an overview of different tea ceremony traditions from Asia. It gives you the opportunity to learn more about the essence of tea and introduces the purpose of the rituals and practices of the ceremony.

During this tree-hours workshop, you will experience the taste of 6 different types of exquisite Chinese teas and will be able to compare several quality levels while enjoying the spirit of tea in a relaxing Fu Dao atmosphere.

For more information please click here.

Last but not least, we’re having a special Dao Hong Pao Imperial promotion for the season which is just ideal for the weather to come because da Hong Pao warms up the interior and facilitates the digestion. It’s also a very mild lightly smoked tea which being 80% fermented has almost the taste of black tea but all the advantages of green tea (i.e. Flavonoide, Anti-Oxidants)

Time for New Blue Tea

October 18, 2011

Since Oolong (also called Blue Tea or 青茶)is being harvested in Automne, it’s the time to get new one before Christmas. A Blue tea is everything between green tea and black tea. It just depends on the way the fresh tea leaves have been processed and their level of fermentation. Blue Tea is one of the most unrepresented tea in our countries although there are may different types of them. For instance Oolong (also called Wu Long), Tie Guan Yin, Da Hong Pao are all Blue teas. Their name and taste depends on many factors but manly on the type and percentage of oxidation. This type of tea is the most complicated to process because it undergoes the most human intervention which are mad of about seven steps It’s considered a work of art to make a perfect blue tea because it depend on many aspects such as the time of harvest, the picking of the tea and of course the way of processing it. To give an idea of the work this tea represent, have a look at this short video.
