Lighthearted, informative, easy to listen

Love love love this podcast. It’s engaging and informative yet easy to digest and fun. A lot of it is centered around oolong—tasting notes with a lot of interesting tea philosophy and journey.
Thank you for this wonderful podcast

Finally

I’ve been looking for an Oolong centered active tea podcast that is enjoyable to listen to and gets into deep tea culture with hints of philosophy. This is truly a gem of a podcast

If you're serious about tea, this is a must listen

Love this podcast. So much fun. So much information. And I learn about teas I might not have understood or ordered without the podcast. Win, win, win.
