I love to turn to this tea in the fall. It just goes well with spice cakes and the brilliant colors of the turning leaves. The exotic mandarin orange flavor in a hot tea is just what I need to put a little warm back into the shortening days.
I’m a writer, mostly of poetry, haiku, tanka, etc., and a professional translator. I think of myself these days as a student of wabi sabi and zen buddhism and, as always, practically a druid in my reverence for wild nature.
