No wonder is this an award winning tea.The bouquet is mysteriously captivating,a cross between earth and sky, the colorhue that changes from an autumn preripe persimmon yellow to a coppery red/brown maple leaf hue.Taste is slightly earthy without the dust or twinge of anything dry or alum.You cant seem to overbrew this tea with negative results.Each brew takes you farther within the mystery, a warming walk secure and complex, anxiously awaiting each new vista.

Finding all the pleasures and awakenings in Loose Leaf tea late in life, but thankful I did.Theres something very calming about tea, from the bouquet that wafts from the tin to the design the fannings left in the bottom of the cup.Perhaps its not the refinement from the ceremony of preparation, nor the enjoyment of warmth, scent and flavor, but perhaps its the pure and simple pleasure of enjoying something that is elemental,unassuming and humble in its existance.
