Phyllis has been a long-time online tea friend, and was a traveling companion on the 2007 Tea in London Tour. Phyllis learned about serving Flaming Oolong Tea from Denise our tour leader and from Martha our California tea friend. Phyllis prepared and served Flaming Oolong at our ATAA 10th Anniversary event at Amherst Rose in Massillon, Ohio.
I admit I drank my flaming Oolong before I thought to take a photo. Mary Jane sets her table with small "tasting cups" in addition to teacups. We used those cups to taste the delicious Flaming Oolong.
Phyllis used a very fine Cognac and Ingrid's lovely Oolong tea from Anxi to prepare this special beverage.
Directions for making Flaming Oolong can be found on eHow under "How to Use a Cognac Spoon"
