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)

Tea tested for you!

March 27, 2012

This time I was determined to get tea from another part of the world. Thinking not to become to rigid and having the insatiable feeling that new teas in Fu Dao’s assortment would only be positive. So instead of going to China for the harvest, I decided to combine my “research” with a holiday on the tropical Island of Mauritius. We had heard about the route of tea at “Bon Cheri” that had opened in 1823 and since then are making the most exquisite beverage on the island. Thinking that would become one of Fu Dao’s “raritea” I went there with my folks and tested the different kinds of teas. 

But once again, I was surprised by the process of treating the precious teaplant and therefore the end result was a fiasco. I spent a whole day tasting all the tea sorts that are made available there, trying hard to convince myself that this couldn’t be true. I thought I would come back with one of the most precious liquor and was tasting the most bitter green tea I had every tried (except of course for most of the teabags that are even worse.)

In fact, that just confirms that nothing equals a chinese tea that has been plucked by hand and not been spoiled by pesticides…
