T Ching Post – Growing Up in a Tea Family + Random Updates

Remember the tea pal? I get to tell more of his story on T Ching, yay! Read the full story here.

On other teapallish related news, I met with the Tiong Bahru tea peeps again for another tea tasting session but forgot to take pictures of a very lovely afternoon gathering where we sampled a beguiling Darjeeling tea that tasted like white tea, a honey-sweet Phoenix Dancong, a complex Tieguanyin, a rich and fruity Lapsang Soucong, a robust Big Red Robe and an earthy Imperial Puerh. Yum.

Oh and I have since “graduated” from basic tea class (i.e. finish 15 lessons lah) and am now doing a 1-year (!) intermediate thingy where it’s more theoretical and the lao shi is telling me I should write something after each lesson, which I just did yesterday, ostensibly for another tea-related article for another website. Stay tuned for that!

    Hi Mel
    I’d be interested to know where you are taking this basic tea class.
