The dry leaves had only a very subtle smell. This brewed an to be an incredibly dark purple color on its first 1-second infusion. The color was shocking, actually- both ruby colored and yet also blueish. The wet leaf has a wonderful aroma, the finish has the taste of red clay. There are many layers of flavor (which I am terrible at describing). This tea was incredible through many steepings.

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
