I took part in the Winter Tea Tasting at Stone Leaf Teahouse in Middlebury recently.
They have an exceptional variety of tea from Taiwan, India, Japan and China.
One of the owners, John, took us through a tasting of Oolongs from Taiwan and a black tea from Nepal. John has a wealth of knowledge not only in the varieties, but the ritual of tea.
I am a fan of green tea and black tea, but the Oolong variety holds another world of taste!
Enjoying one of these exotic brews is a great way to warm up a cold Vermont winter's day!
