Douglas Fir Tip Tea

January 22, 2008


A co-worker recently brought some Douglas Fir Tip Tea from Juniper Ridge, and I had forgotten that I stashed a bag in my desk drawer until I was rummaging around trying to find a good tea to take care of the latest chest cold that’s going around. It isn’t advertised as a remedy, but the idea of breathing in the pungent vapors of the fir tree sounded like a pretty good way to soothe my airways.

Douglas Fir Tip TeaIt comes in unbleached bags, and the color of the brew is a very delicate light green-tan-yellow all at once. It does smell like a Christmas tree, but without the other spicy extras that are tossed into your average seasonal scented candle. There is nothing overpowering about this tisane – it’s simply the clean, bright scent of a the crisp, dry air on a January morning on the Cascade Crest. A lemony overtone creeps through, and it takes me back to my favorite forest campsite in the same way that my first pu’erh did. I think it would go well with a dab of honey, too.

Boutique Pu’erh. How Much of a Story Does the Top End of the Western Boutique Pu’erh Market Tell?

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
