I consider myself fortunate to live at the source of some of the most amazing teas available – in Taiwan.
I still remember the first time a taiwanese Friend brewed some tea for me – it was a revelation, ever since I have been ruined for teas from anywhere else
(I do occasionally try teas from other sources, but haven’t found something that I liked as much).
My favorite tees come from Lishan.
The great thing about Taiwan is that as soon as people find out that one (and foreigner on top) really likes tea they give you loads of tea. A nice way to try new things apart from one’s own trusted tea shops.
To earn a living here, I have a design studio with my wife.
I also took up pottery classes where I am studying hard to learn how to make my own teaware. The teacher is also quite knowledgeable with tea, so after each pottery class, the tea class starts
Hope to learn new things here as well!
