Some Teas to Test

Photo Aug 26, 8 28 14 PM

A little preview of a new project of mine. I have a big cabinet of tea, much of it left over from China and Taiwan, much of which is not really cutting it any more. I find myself more and more frequently disappointed by the oolongs I’m pulling out of my stash, but knowing how many I have I am loathe to buy more.

Hence, this project! I have gathered all the oolongs I think are questionable together. I will taste each of these teas and determine which are still delicious and which must sadly be consigned to the ether.

Round one is already complete. A long-lived San Lin Shi I bought in a Taipei Night Market and a more recent Shuping are on their way out. But the real fun is just beginning!
