Drunk on Tea, Part 1

Green 85

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 and
includes information about classes and events.
