Victoria Tea Festival: Tula Teas
On a recommendation by Pedro of Dao Tea, one visited Libby of Tula Teas at this years Victoria Tea Festival. This exhibitor was actually here at the 2010 Victoria Tea Festival but one had overlooked them thinking that they sold herbal teas exclusively. As it turns out Libby, the owner of this few years old local company, has a passion for oolong. She even visited Taiwan this year to personally source some tea.
This year everyone was talking about her oolong. The fun-loving Libby was creating a lot of stir about an oolong she sells that is grown and produced in a very unconventional place, New Zealand.
Like most people, one was surprised at the quality and picked up a bag of each for fun.
