Hawaii Tea Club Launches In Style

Oolalah! An Afternoon of Oolongs marked the successful launch of the Hawaii Tea Club.  Leading the presentation was Taiwan Tea Ambassador Thomas Shu, in Hawaii with his wife Josephine.  Participants “oo’d” and “ah’d” its way through a flight of 6 premium Taiwan oolongs.  Memorable highlights included the luscious fruit notes of Oriental Beauty, the floral bouquet of Wenshan Pouchong and the creamy smoothness of a classic high altitude Jade Oolong.

For the majority of participants, this was their first cupping experience.  However, connoisseurs familiar with oolong culture were also in attendance.   At the end of the 2 hour presentation, it was unanimous that all 23 attendees were pleased, learned alot from the experience and want to meet again.
