McIntosh Tea

Hi, my name is Jeffrey McIntosh, I am pu-erh tea specialist, cultural liaison and a passionate tea drinker. I have been studying and building tea companies for more than a decade.

I have had the honor to train under a renowned Chinese tea master, lived in Yunnan while becoming proficient in mandarin Chinese, and gained a thorough understanding of the international tea market. Since then, I have started multiple US-based tea companies that worked directly with Chinese farms and suppliers. You may have heard of some of the companies and projects I worked on like; McIntosh Tea, Smacha, Xian Chan Tea, inc., Teabook and Denong.

Floating Leaves Tea

Floating Leaves Tea is a family business that sources single estate teas through Taiwanese growers, roasters and old-school wholesalers. When a new customer walks into our shop, we hope to impress this one thing upon them: Good quality tea can take you further than you have ever imagined!

This is a virtual version of a tea class we planned to schedule at University of Puget Sound in April of this year. Now that we aren’t able to come in person, we decided to make this our first virtual tea class!

The goal of the class is to introduce participants to Taiwanese oolongs, and how we’ve learned to get the most out of them from the masters in Taiwan. If you would like to purchase the teas and drink along (highly recommended) you can find them through this link below.

About Golden Flower Dark Tea

For many centuries, the golden fungus in Hunan Province dark tea has been a dietary supplement to the people of Tibet. This unique probiotic strain of dark tea is also called the probiotic of the Overlord Germ. Clinical studies have shown the bacteria can effectively inhibit the proliferation of colon, gastric and liver cancer cells. Under a high magnifying glass, the golden flower is golden yellow, shaped like a spherical mushroom.

Golden Flower, also known as Fu-brick tea, has become the hot spot of various scientific research institutions in the world. Recent Hunan Agricultural University studies have found that eurotium cristatum (Golden Flower) can play an active role in prolonging the life span of human beings. In addition, it also has a very significant effect on the improvement of intestinal, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
