  4. Handpicked Hong Yun No 21 Tea

Chau-Jean says: “I am pleased to have this chance to share these less commonly known teas, especially Gunko tea.  I spent several years looking for that particular tea.  Gunko tea had been popular more than 40 years ago but had fallen out of fashion.  I asked tea associations and clubs throughout Taiwan, the directors of the Taiwanese tea research institutes, and people in the industry.  No one knew where to find it.  Finally, my parents came across Gunko tea farmers right before Covid while visiting my family in Southern Taiwan.

Along with learning more about the history of these teas, Chau-Jean will give you tips for those who might want to brew them using gongfu cha style. It will be a lovely evening with a variety of teas from different regions of the island.  

What will I need?

  1. Your phone, computer or tablet to join the webinar via Zoom
  2. Brewing equipment (kettle, teapot etc.) and a surface on which to brew the teas during the webinar
