Sipdown!
I am all done with this one, but would certainly consider getting more. Drinking it plain today since I’m all out of soymilk. Looking forward to an all day meditation retreat tomorrow!

Update: I iced the remainder I had and this makes a really good iced tea with a teaspoon of sugar.

Amy… when I was in Kunming in April, I sat with Ned (who owns Silk Road Teas) for hours sipping tea and having wonderful conversation. He is a very genuine and sweet man. So grateful to have had the opportunity to share tea with him. Great guy.

Have a great meditation retreat tomorrow! I will be doing the same exact thing! It’s my Saturday thang. Fasting, qigong, meditation all day long. Thanks for being willing to do the work, sister!! The whole planet is better off because of it!

Oh, and I forgot that a few silent gongfu cha sessions will be interspersed in there, too! My new “Heart of the Old Tree” sheng and my new “Wild Monk” sheng will be the teas du jour!! One very heart opening and one very grounding!

I wish I could bring some tea with me to my daylong! Maybe in a thermos…

I would think they’d have some tea there at an all day event of that type.

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
