This week, I drove back to 103K with all these memories in my head.
The sky was still blue, but the tea trees are gone,
The access to these high plantations remains very difficult and tiring. So, to get to the one near 100K, you need to use a little train on a monorail!
The view from a Da Yu Ling Oolong plantation is magnificent and not something you forget easily!
Cultivar: qingxin (ruanzhi) Oolong
Harvested by hand on May 12th, 2015.
Elevation: 2500 meters!
The color theme for my Chaxi is sky blue! The leaves touch the sky and we're almost in heaven! This is how it feels hiking in the plantation and how it should feel drinking this tea.
As you can see, I don't use many leaves, but I do use my silver teapot, which helps get more out of the leaves (thanks to its heat conductivity).
light celadon singing cups. Today, I'm using the big model. 3 cups are a good fit for the 20 cl teapot.
So good that cups are emptied before I have time to take my shot!
