88

I recently got a quantity of Rishi brand wuyi because I was at Whole Foods not Central Market. It has accomplished nothing but to help me more deeply appreciate this one from RoTea. The Rishi has this utterly overwhelming… pong. I swear, that tea has body odor. And no matter how short or how long the steep, no matter how many steeps you do, you can’t get rid of it.

But this wuyi from RoTea is almost like a Darjeeling on steroids. Light, crisp, toasty and bold.

My pepper flake incident has exploded into a full blown head cold and so today is all about tea.

I saw that Rishi wuyi at Whole Foods and almost bought it…

There’s no arguing taste. Maybe it just isn’t what I like. Maybe see if you can snag a sample?

Are you sure it was a pepper flake and not one of those itchy scratchy cold coming on things?

Jim Marks

Yeah, I could feel it burning.
