I am making up for my silence yesterday. Today is an overcast indoor day. I will drink tea. And a lot of it. Another sample from Butiki. I am brewing this in the Gaiwan for the suggested 1 minute. This tea already has sent an energy through my body that is otherworldy. I feel like I could do anything. So much for staying at home. This tea makes you want to do something. Anything. The flavor and aroma are rich and very intoxicating. In The Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell, Roger Guillemen states: " But yet, if you study psychedelic experiances, you also have to consider green tea, which is loaded with caffeine or molecules like caffeine. And it’s very well known that this has a profound influence on the function of some people." This tea does provide a profound influence on me. Superb….
Grown under straw shades for at least two weeks prior to harvesting, Gyokuro Superior is a first harvest green tea grown in Asahina, Japan. Translated as ‘Jewel Dew’, this rare tea produces a sweet mellow flavor that finishes with notes of seaweed. This Gyokuro Superior is extra fine.
