This week on Talking Tea we get “drunk” on tea at Tea Drunk, a teahouse in New York City serving traditional Chinese tea. Shunan Teng, who founded and owns Tea Drunk (and knows just about everything there is to know about Chinese tea), talks with us about wild tea, Chan Cha or “monk’s tea”, tea picking seasons, and why tea requires a dedicated palate and a dedicated mind.
In our next episode, Part 2 of “Drunk on Tea”, Shunan talks with us in depth about pu erh tea, as well as about ongoing events and classes at Tea Drunk. Stay tuned!
Tea Drunk’s website is at www.t-drunk.com and includes information about classes and events.
