Tea leaves and tea drinkers are also influenced by the sun! Without sufficient sun, tea leaves don't grow healthily. They absorb too much water and the brew looses clarity and concentration.
without! The leaves of this luanze (qingxin) Oolong look a vivid and deep green. They were harvested by hand on May 6, 2011, on Qi Lai mountain, at an elevation of 2200 meters.
The pure, flowery and fresh fragrances of the dry leaves carry a light sweetness. The size of the leaves is a little bit smaller than usual for Oolong coming from such a high plantation. The harvest had to happen early, because rain was coming.
The oxidation is on the light side and this gives this Oolong a strong cooling effect that was particularly welcome this day on the white beach of Kenting.
Children build sand castles.
Tea and sun dance in my cup.
Happiness is easy.
Wish you were here!
