Zhong Hao’s Art Gallery and Teasme Teas

In this fall, fine art master student Zhong Hao of University of Canterbury presented Teasme teas in his art exhibition.

Taiwan Tea Estate

One of our most popular tea is the premium quality oolong teas (in our purple colour labels) that we import directly from Taiwanese tea farmers. The quality speaks for itself and the customers who have tried it always come back for more.

My family works at the tea estate and my father sent me some photos by email. The photos were taken in Nan-Tou region in Taiwan. The area is called Zhu-San (translated as Bamboo Mountain). This is very close to where out Cold Mountain Oolong came from which is Shan-Lin-Shi area.

Honey Charcoal Grilled Oolong

One of the hottest seller this summer was charcoal Grilled Oolong. We used the oolong tea to make this thick and strong tea base that allowed us to dilute and freeze with ice and honey.

Once it’s mixed and shake with our shakers we have our chilled oolong tea. It’s one of our bubble teas but I prefer it without any add-on. Just the tea itself was refreshing with a lot of kick and depth for long lasting tea sensation.

Here are photos of our Charcoal Grilled Oolong teas. Currently we do not have this tea because we have used up all the charcoal grilled oolong teas we imported in the last shipment.  We all miss it.. alot.

The photo below was taken on the first day when charcoal grilled oolong ice tea was introduced in the store. It was a memorable day. The girls wrote it on the board and boom there it goes, fresh iced tea made on the spot to customers’ hands.

Matcha Iced Bubble Tea

Japanese Matcha is world famous. It is one of a kind. It represents Japanese tea ceremony and it is also the only tea we hand grind the tea leaf into powder form and ‘drink’ it. The powder is nothing like the CTC grade tea dust in supermarket gun-boots tea bags. We are talking about highly prized Japanese green tea. The powders are made so fine it dissolve in hot water as you stir it in a bow. Nowadays, people are using this green tea powder ‘matcha’ for baking, cooking and flavored decoration on food and deserts. It is so popular that western culture have adapted this ingredient in their beverages. Eg. Matcha Slushy. Here are some examples of Matcha powder mixed with milk creamer and ice.
