A true mother of all teas! Probably the first of bushes to be made into tea, and very ancient. A sip and much more will yield the history of every leaf, every nutrients, every seasons, throughout the most of bountiful of seasons to the harshest…its much like a journey throughout the many eras of life! Its all thanks being picked from the same shrubs that produces Pu-Erh which supposedly have deep and encompassing roots that imparts many flavors around its growth! Its much like Assam reincarnated but with hints of pepper, a bit leathery and chocolaty like Pu-Erh which a combination of the two really goes well for a cuppa and served alone. A true testament to tea and flavors that reflects the ages!

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
