Grand Cupping is always so impressive to our TOST friends. On 10/27/2012, we visit Sha Keng Tea and to meet with Norman Shu (the President of TTMA). He has prepared 4 tables-full of teas: Table 1 is lined up with the status of Oxidation (from green tea, pouchong, jade, classic tungting and amber oolong)., Table 2 is baked oolongs with 3 machinery baked and 2 charcoal baked., Table 3 is Oriental Beauty with different grades., Table 4 is Brandy Oolong with different cultivars. Norman leads this cupping session, and really refresh our members with their learning during the week.
My father is the most excited person that day. He has been waiting for our TOST friends every year at the factory, and he likes to greet everyone and make sure Josephine and I have done our jobs right.
