Last month's events were fabulous! Noteably the Austin Wine Festival. After a massive tropical storm destroyed our 50x50' tent and nearly drowned all our tea, the rest of the weekend was great. We had so much fun and so many familiar faces.
We are changing our site! To adapt to the new world of video, blogging, and sheer simplicity, we are revamping our site at the end of this month.
Expect nice and simple changes and a very streamlined shopping cart.
Here is a sneak preview just for you!
We are working hard to ensure that the switch over is easy and seamless! (crossing fingers!)
A nice article on tea freshness and health benefits:
Is that oolong you bought 10 years ago and just found hiding in the back corner of your cabinet still worth drinking? In two installments, WTN presents scientific findings and experts’ opinions on how tea age affects quality:.
Dr. Oolong, I hate green tea! Please help! I want to love it, but it tastes like boiled aspirin. I bought some green tea at a local high-end grocery store last week to try and overcome my green tea aversion for the millionth time. I made a cup with one of the tea bags, following all the directions and it ended up tasting like crap! Help!

Dear FGIP, Firstly, let me say I am sorry you have yet to experience the joys of a lovely cup or pot of green tea. The good news is that the solution is right around the corner.
So, green tea. Where do we start? Green tea drinking should be enjoyable! In fact, it should be lovely, the way nature intended it to be. There are a few necessary things to keep in mind when steeping green tea for the perfect cup.
You gotta start with fresh, high quality loose tea. That is a must. Tea bag cut green tea will be stale by the time you grab it from the shelf of a grocery store. So get some loose tea from a trusted source. If you want to ensure purity, choose an organic certfied tea. Next you need to steep your leaves in the correct tempurature water. This is also critical. Boiling water will ruin your steep! Then, proper steeping time is critical. Oversteeping is a main causr of bitter tasting tea. The doc tends to steep his green teas for only 2 minutes, assuring a non-astringent cup of great tea.
So, FGIP, to summarize: Qulaity, Tempurature, and Time. Simple, yet important principals. And one can not overerestimate experimentation. Once you have the three principals, play with them! Have fun and let yourself go - into a fine cup of green tea. 500 million green tea drinkers are right there with you, every day!
