Admittedly, there are a lot of tea vendors selling a lot of different teas out there. Most are, in our opinion, very poor to, at best, average quality - possibly based on price. The best teas often range from moderately expensive to really really expensive especially if they have been aged for years.

Please click on the photos to bring up larger POPUP photos which have more information.

The Red Water teas are produced by a friend of ours in Taiwan. She hand picks her highest quality high mountain oolong and roasts it to perfection. Then, she takes the best of that oolong and puts it through at least 10 additional roastings to produce her exquisite Hong Shui Red Water oolong. The tea fills your room with its fragrance when infused, producing a rich dark liquor with a totally unique roasted nutty flavor. Barb and I have never had another Red Water oollong that ever approaches this quality. This tea ages incredibly well stored in air tight dark glass containers with screw lids. Barb and I served our best friend from Taiwan some of our Hong Shui Cha that we have had for over 15 years. He only drinks Red Water and pu-ehr teas and he could not believe the quality, the richness, the deep mellow flavors, and the complexities that an additional 15 years of aging had imparted on the tea. I have recently been able to import a limited quantity of Hong Shui Red Water along with the Premium Hong Shui Chen Nian Lao Red Water oolong that has been aged for more than 15 years.

Barb and I have sampled many different Tikuanyin oolong teas. You can follow our suggestion for steeping Tikuanyin oolong teas - use 7 grams in a teapot or you can use the Taiwan method of using much more tea and very short steepings.

Thank You --- Terry & Barbara
