About five years ago, we bought a brick of Anhua Dark Tea out of curiosity. It was just an ordinary brick produced by one of Anhua County’s bigger factories. It was tasty, different and very pleasant. Our interest was sparked, but we did not know much about Anhua Dark Tea.
In this post, we discuss our own tea geography. We talk about the tea regions we specialize in, and why we do so. This is both an article about the importance of terroir and origin in general, and an insight into how we approach it.
Tea sourcing is one of our favourite activity. Visiting a tea producing region is very enjoyable. We like to walk through the tea plants, before sitting down with the farmers and producers. Of course, we enjoy tasting their teas and discussing with them about all kinds of tea related topics.
This Fine Tea Preparation Guide is intended to be an instruction for brewing high-end tea leaves to their full potential. Beginners can follow it step by step, while more experienced drinkers can treat it as a series of tips.
