Some Of The Tea In China
After coming off a recent binge, of sorts, on Yunnan and Golden Monkey teas, I'm pretty well sold on the merits of Chinese tea. Not that I wasn't already.
Here are a pair of interesting articles on tea in China.
The first comes to us from Malaysia's The Star Online. It details how the country is finding it "difficult to gain a position in the world’s high-end tea market" and discusses tea firm Zhuyeqing, who are trying to do just that. Prices of their specialty teas range from $1,282 to $2,564 for 500 grams, which ain't exactly something to sneeze about.
I still have not made much of a dent in the world of pu-er tea. You know how it is - so much tea and so little time. Here's a brief piece - also from The Star Online - about pu-er tea in China and Malaysia.
While we're on the subject of pu-er, here's a link to a video demonstrating "how to clean and carefully break apart a pressed cake of Pu-erh tea."
