Carrie, tea artist and good friend, can hardly keep up with the demand for her Eight Treasure Tea. Imagine, high-mountain Oolong tea, golden raisins, dried longans, crunchy-sweet winter melon, fat Chinese wolfberries, juicy Chinese red dates, tender rose petals, and sweet pinenuts. Each ingredient sourced and prepared according to her exacting standards. All I had to do was to pour hot water, wait impatiently for 3 minutes, and enjoy a most heavenly, soothing and uplifting drink.
Just to compare, I tried the Eight Treasure Tea at a Shanghainese restaurant in Purvis Street. This so cannot make it.
