We were all so excited to see our leaves come out the of dryer as that meant we were finished for the night. However, we were not finished with the tea, as we would need to come back the next morning for the next steps.
After studying tea for over ten years, working hands-on to actually make oolong tea myself was an amazing experience. Understanding all the leaf goes through physically and chemically, as well as, how much effort is put into it by the tea master, makes me appreciate what is in my cup each day so much more. I was told that by the time a consumer makes a pot of specialty tea,
880 people have handled and put effort into getting it into your cup.
Happy Thanksgiving and Sipping, Lisa
