I think I might like this one better than Laoshan Black these days. Enough said.

EDIT: I just noticed that this tea has thousands of tiny sparkling hairs suspended in it. This is something I have not seen in a black tea before. It looked beautiful glittering in the afternoon sunlight!

Cool! I’ve noticed “fuzz” on the leaves with teas like Golden Fleece, but have only brewed up my packet of Yu Lu Yan Cha once, and may not have noted it there.

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!
