No it’s not the OS (a Mac joke). A very sweet and flavorful tea. Light and refreshing on the palate. Dispels the myth, that you can’t drink tea on a hot day( it was 85 today). Prepped in glass gaiwan, I like to watch the leaves “dance” as the open up. Kept water at 170 degrees, 2 teaspoons , 6 oz gaiwan yielded 4 steepings.

Drink Your Tea

by Thich Nhat Hanh

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves
- slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

Prepped in a ceramic gaiwan that holds 6 oz. Multi-colored leaves, from white to orange/red, to dark brown. Dry leaves have spicey,floral smell. Steeped 2 generous pinches, enough to coat the bottom of the gaiwan for 3 minutes. Leaves are large so a tea scoop would work too. The dark amber brew is sweet, with hints of cinnamon, citrus flavors round out the aftertaste.
