drank Wenshan Baozhong by Harney & Sons
1876 tasting notes

I really needed a soothing oolong break tonight – not just a cup of tea or a pot, but to sit down with my Yixing set and take my time going through a number of steeps of something interesting. This is the tea I used to season my set.

I have gmathis’ Pandora station playing (JJHeller, thank you GG, I recommended it to one of my voice students this week as well)

I think I was a bit skimpy with the leaf, but this is still good. The aroma is definitely floral, but the buttered sweet vegetables are there, too.

I am missing my dad, who died 24 years ago this week. A relative I don’t even know found a picture of my dad as a child and sent it to me yesterday, so he has been even more on my mind than usual. I had never seen a childhood photo of him, but when I looked in his eyes I knew it was him! Miss you, Dad! Thank you for everything.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
