Homage to Laoshan Black

Its taste feels like the most beautiful Bach sonatas and partitas will do to my ears when they trigger that flow of emotions causing tears to tickle my eyes.

It also rocks my world just like Led Zeppelin or Nirvana does.

The beauty of each sip takes my breath away, just like every brush stroke does on my favourite Van Gogh paintings.

The aroma makes me want to take off my shoes, go run and dance in the neon green grass after the rain…

It makes the ugly go away for a while…

It rights the wrongs…

If you haven’t been able to say that much about anything lately, have a cup of this miracle elixir.

Thanks to Verdant and the He family for bringing such an extraordinary tea to such an ordinary gal like me :-)

Love the music references! Makes me want to play some Bach on the piano before heading home. So magical.

I almost never even listen to Nirvana but this makes me want to put that on too haha.

Haha! i love music references cause they are so part of who i am, almost everything I do or think about is related to music…do you play the piano? Bach is my favourite classical composer ever. He was most definitely the rockstar of his time.
Yep, can’t believe I still listen to Nirvana, but there’s a time and a mood for it I guess.
Lately, I’ve been hooked on the latest Queens of the Stone Age, just amazing album!

Bio

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
