Tea of the afternoon here, I’m finishing off this sample I got from Norbu Tea a while ago. It isn’t the sweetest white tea I’ve ever had, it borders more of nutty/sesame flavors. It’s a beautiful day here and a great day for white tea! This stuff is nice but I won’t go out of my way to get any more.

Meditation for the day: detachment is knowing that other people’s criticisms are really about them.

thank you. :)
I got inspired by this book, in part: http://www.amazon.com/Let-Go-Now-Embracing-Detachment/dp/157324466X

Sounds like a good book! I’ve been practicing Aikido for a few years, and I read a book a couple of years ago called “Aikido in Everyday Life” that sounds similar. :)

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
