I usually pride myself in being able to rattle off the 8 to 10 teas we drink during the course of a meetup. However, in the company of Dae and David I finally met my match. Dae says she hasn’t drank this much tea since her trip to Taiwan — I am indeed struggling to remember every tea. I’ve done my best to recall them in no particular order.
1996 Huang Yin — Sun Sing
1997 Menghai 8582
1980s Xiaguan Traditional Characters
2004 Silver Tip Puerh — The Tea Gallery
1950s “Raisin Bread Aroma” Shui Xian
Sun Moon Lake Assam
Winter 09 Shan Lin Shi Jade vs. Shan Lin Shi Medium Roast
2010 Shincha — Ippodo
A tea or two may have been forgotten, but an amazing Memorial Day weekend with friends will be remembered for a long time.
