gold in your eyes - steeping with michael fritts

A tea blog that shows the diamonds in the rough.

In Oroville, California, there lives a man by the name of Michael Fritts. A quiet man, he spends his time tending to his tea bushes, slowly perfecting the aptly named "Gold in your Eyes" oolong. He let me brew some during the World Tea Expo in 2014 and it was incredibly smooth with just the subtlest notes of sweetness. American tea is well on its way to your cup.
