Many thanks to all who supported and followed the events of ‘miXtea 2014’ either on social media or in person at the events of Québec City and Montréal. We trust it was as rewarding for you as it was for us to receive our guest producers and tasters from Taiwan.
Our friends have now returned to Taiwan, leaving us with great memories and a few spectacular teas! During the conferences we discussed the famous Luku Competition. For many years we have been working on accessing these classic style Dong Dong teas for the catalogue. This year we took things to another level and managed to aquire 3 different lots from the 2014 competition among the top teas of the 5800 entered.
To better explain the methodology and classification of the competition we have drawn up this graphic (only available in french).
There are two rounds of initial tasting. Those teas with an ‘A’ grading will pass to the second round of evaluation. The teas will be re-evaluated 3 times before the judges determine their classification. For 14 days 35 judges will taste thousands of teas, averaging over 300 each day.
Finally we offer you the chance to taste some of these precious leaves…
In extra, here are a few pictures of the mite event…
