unraveltea. A very common question: how much tea do you need?
This is 5g of Alisha

A very common question: how much tea do you need? This is 5g of Alishan oolong after infusion. Imagine trying to squeeze this into a tea infuser. Tea needs space to unravel and spread it's leaves ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ . One of the many reasons why #gongfu brewing is our preferred tea preperation method. . . Which tea did you discover first through gongfu brewing? What is top of your #teabucketlist ? For me I'd love to try mother bush dhp... Hey I can dream right? ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿƒ

Meet our Christmas tree! Love the way it looks like it's folded books ๐Ÿ˜ For some reason for the last week have really been craving some four seasons oolong, normally it's roasted oolongs in the dark days. Gave in to the craving finally! Happy I did, the warm summer months flooded back through the cup. Double tap if you've been craving unusual summer type things (ice cream counts too!). . . #christmastree #tea #gaiwan #notsofestivetea

That's all from thistle street food market this year! Thank you to everyone who came to say hi, hope the tea samples warmed you up a bit โ˜บ Keeping cosy this evening with a blanket and some Unsmoked Lapsang. Just hoping the caffiene won't keep me awake too long. Sometimes I just have a specific tea craving... Tell me I'm not alone ๐Ÿ˜…

As the last of the leaves turn i am greeted by this beautiful carpet of yellow hues. Reminded me of the Alishan oolong colour, which i am having so many issues describing. Never have i experienced such a multifaceted oolong before.... Promise to have it available tomorrow evening, you will have to excuse the attempt at describing it. Have you ever found any teas that are so sublime they haunt your thoughts and tastebuds?

Received this beautiful Alishan oolong the other day. After so many samples with added flavourings attempting to replicate the natural creamy notes, this is a real treat. Such a complex tea, every infusion reveals new notes. A lingering sweet creamy end note stays constant throughout the session. You can almost taste the care the tea was produced with. This truely is tea, as nature intended. . . . . Is it so wrong that i would love to swim in this tea ๐Ÿ˜…

Dramatic shot of an exciting tea that just arrived. This year's Empress' Gratitude ๐Ÿ˜ So amazingly smooth, the cinnamon notes are not as drying as previous years offerings. Trying to put my finger on the fruity profile, but it's eluding words for now. Why is describing tea so hard sometimes? . . Hope you all have time for tea in your day today ๐Ÿ˜Š

Beautiful Tie Guan Yin leaves in my new tea bowl from @ceramiker ๐Ÿ˜ Perhaps I couldn't resist and bought a jug with similar glaze ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿƒ . . The past few weeks have been strange, ended up over thinking any and all instagram posts in my head. Which resulted in never posting anything. Safe to say my brain is misbehaving. So I've been trying to make time every day for tea, slow things down. Not sure if it is working yet, have so many ideas for future posts. It seems a fear of just how much needs done has developed.

Matcha drop! This photo idea has been rolling around my head for a while now, finally got a day with relatively low wind and bright sunshine ๐Ÿ˜ Yes, the matcha did go everywhere ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒฟ . . Reminds me to stay present, and appreciate the moment. Trying not to dwell on the fact it took so long to actually happen. Its the journey that counts, not where you end up ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ

Had the privilege of visiting the amazing @windyhollowfarm_ last week. We were treated to various natural grown teas produced by Tea Master Mr Kao. Lovingly prepared in his Qing Dynasty Yixing teapot, yes there was teapot envy! ๐Ÿ˜ #teapotgoals The teapot details were referred to as the three friends; bamboo, plum blossom and pine whose strengths have been brought together. . . Learned a great deal from both Monica and Mr Kao, also Claire the fantastic and patient interpreter. Thank you so much for having us ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ . . . . Silence this week as my camera stopped functioning as intended during this visit, so these phone photos are not the best. Filters make everything better don't they? ๐Ÿค”

Tea in a wine glass, so it turns out that matcha is messy to do this with @exoteaque ๐Ÿ˜‚ Well if you don't try, you never know! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฃ Recommend not trying this at home, a tea bowl is by far preferable.

Now for something completely different. Ok so many not completely different, matcha is just another form of tea ๐ŸŒฟ Shaded before picking to increase theanine levels, which results in more umami flavours from the leaves.
