I was persuaded to try Hei Cha after watching some tdb.org reviews of them and I have to say, despite the dirt smell and unappealing look of this tea, the golden liquor was quite tasty—honey sweet and tangy—and very easy to drink. It’s a powerhouse too; I was able to steep this upwards of 15 times with little drop off in flavor and the buzz rivaled that of a quality raw pu erh.

I love tea and living in a place that is cold or cool nine months of the year, tea is a constant source of warmth and education. I always drink tea straight and rarely drink flavored teas or Tisanes, except for the occasional Rooibos. I’m a proud father of two young boys, an avid skier, motorcyclist, reader, and runner. I have a doctorate in English (dissertation on Emily Dickinson.)
