This week I have been presenting webinars for students in different countries around the world.
I always like to have a drink handy when I am lecturing in case my throat starts to dry out. Since I am presenting from home it is nice to be able to choose one of my many teas.
For my webinar with Japan earlier this week I selected some Green Tea I bought during my last trip there.
For my webinar with India I decide to make a cup of Vahdam High Mountain Oolong Tea, which comes from the Darjeeling area of India. One of my trainers from India had brought it to me on his last trip to California.This tea has a nice dark color and is one of the more highly oxidized oolong teas.
For my webinar with Southeast Asia I made some DaYuLing Oolong Tea from Taiwan. This tea had been brought to me by my trainer from Singapore who helped me organize the webinar for his region.
I really like this tea. The taste is a bit sweet and mellow and has some floral tones. The mouth feel is very smooth with no harsh edges. There is a nice lingering aftertaste in the early infusions which reduces slowly with later ones. It also sometimes has a hint of cinnamon, or something similar.
I have a few more webinars coming up in the next couple weeks and I already have plans for what teas I will be drinking while I am presenting.
I now have to go make a cup of tea 🙂
