Meetup in the Berkeley Teahouse

We're pleased that the new San Francisco Tea Meetup Group chose our Berkeley Teahouse for its inaugural meetup today. Bay Area-based Tea Sommelier James Labe selected six of our oolongs to taste and discuss: from Taiwan, Wen Shan Bao Zhong, Imperial Green Oolong, and Gui Fei Cha, and from China, Monkey-Picked Tie Guan Yin, the Phoenix Mountain oolong Bai Ye, and from Wu Yi Shan, Yan Ru. It was a warm, sunny afternoon in Berkeley, perfect for tea on our upstairs deck. Here are a couple more photos:

I'm surprised there was no Puerh mentioned. I thought maybe there'd be a mix of Puerh and Oolong. Oh well, maybe next time. --Spirituality of Tea

Sorry to disappoint you, Puerh Guy! Sounds like you know my personal preferences! We'll have a San Francisco Tea Meetup event at Imperial Tea Court that meets your needs for puerh in the future, I promise!
