Yum. Following the steeping instructions from Mariage Frères’ website makes so much of a difference. This tea now lives up to the rating I gave it. I had a feeling that the flaws I was tasting were due to too much leaf or too long of a steep (or both). Thanks Excelcior for pointing out the error of my ways!

Bio

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!
