I’m still fairly early in the steepings of this, but it’s putting me the perfect taichi frame of mind. I’m ready to go move some energy, if you know what I mean.
I’ve written a much better review than this one previously, & I stand by it. This is a lovely textured sheng, light & savory, with hints of lime, unglazed clay, & a creamy vanilla feel that is coming up now. I’ll have to return to this one later, as I brave the pollen count to drive to class.

Hints of lime? …mmm…

I find the unglazed clay mention really unusual. Earthy I can understand, but clay sounds less palatable.

I know, lol. I just re-read my description, & it’s funny how we will perceive tastes & textures that we normally wouldn’t seek out, & yet we enjoy the tea anyway! Anyway, this one is definitely not earthy. The clay taste/texture is clean, mineral, kind of like a brand new yixing.

Oooooh sounds glorious

Revisiting this one some more today, & I’ve sipped through a limestone kind of taste & texture, not to be confused with the earlier lime fruit qualities.
My current cup is creamy, but also kind of fruity & bright.

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
