I know, I know, I know…but this is a partial of a story and review on my blog…OK! www.teaandincense.com
I had an appointment with my Priest.
I regularly request time to meet and discuss various things with Fr. Evan. Sometimes we just talk, sometimes I have confession and most times we have TEA.
Previously I had introduced Puer (which he likes a lot) and Laoshan Black from Verdant. This time, I brought Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black Tea from Butiki.
With a smile, he brought out his electric kettle, filtered water and cups for me to prepare tea. Today, I gifted Fr. a fat white Gaiwan and showed him how to use it.
We smelled the aroma of the leaves in a heated dry Gaiwan. Then we steeped the leaves, poured the liquor into the fairness pitcher and into our cups…stopping to smell the wet leaves.
“WOW!” exclaimed Fr. Evan.
“I taste cherry, no peach…wait…plum…some kind of stone-fruit, and the flavor… stays in my mouth!”
