This morning, this tea has more sourness and harshness than I remember. It’s interesting how the palate morphs based on extraneous conditions. Today, perhaps, the overwhelming heat and humidity have had an impact. It’s still delightfully sweet, supple, and flavorful.

I’ve come to think it’s really important to be aware of the environment of the tea drinking — the “extraneous conditions.” My most memorable tea moments are inextricably woven into the weather, sounds, etc. of where I was when I drank it.

Bio

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
