I am quite fond of the Ti Kuan Yin varietal teas. This one is a lovely balance of the brightness of a green and the richness of an oolong. The tightly bundled (mostly) whole leaf unfurls with the first infusion and tolerates a longer steep time than the normal recommendations from the tea house.

Full disclosure: I am an employee of Chakra 4 Herb and Tea House.

Long a fan of simple ritual and moments of reflection, I’ve come (of late) to a home and work life that affords me considerable time to learn and experience the joy and expansive majesty of tea.

I serve as the Tea Steward at Chakra 4 Herb and Tea House in Phoenix.
