I am brewing this in the Gaiwan. A tsp of tea. My first impression was of seaweed. Very green and vegetal. I am also getting the butter aroma and flavors as I proceed. So far it is very complex. A deeper brew than her spring sister. It is mouth watering. I always like to comment on how a tea makes me feel. This is a feel good tea. A calm body and mind. I am only on cup 3. I have to brew this western style as well soon. With each sip through the thick leaves this tea is putting me at peace. Pure poetry. Zen-like….

Thank you Charles,
I think that you will enjoy the tea Western style as well. I have been having fun with brewing experiments, and this one hasn’t failed me yet. When I did a tasting to unviel this tea in Minneapolis, we all understood better how and why monks would use tea to help with meditation. It just puts you in the frame of mind for it. The poetry and Zen elements are ones I am pleased to see mentioned. It is the other side of tea that nobody can fully put into words.
