This is another tea that my cats “chose” for me. This is quite different than what I’ve been drinking lately. Someone said that they could taste cooked strawberries, and I wouldn’t have come up with that on my own, but the flavor is just like that after the first steeping only without any sweetness. The back palate has a strong sour note and the finish is quite bitter. There’s also quite a lot of minerality and also a metallic flavor. The texture turns quite creamy in the second steep. The strongest flavors are probably citrus, camphor, and fresh florals. On the third steeping I am getting some sweeter notes and there is a peppery aftertaste. I can smell bacon fat at the end of the cup. This one makes for a very interesting gong fu session!

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!
