First Steep of the Day Saturday Morning 3-12-2016, Steeped a Full Pot of this Mystery Tea,
This is My 2nd Tasting of this Tea, 1st was 3 Months ago, It seems that I have had GREATER enjoyment of this tea this Morning, Maybe Just the Day Dawning adds to the Enjoyment.
This tasting seemed a little more “Outside Rural Woodie” tasting, then I remember the 1st tasting to be. But it is Really Enjoyable. GREAT MORNING GREETING TEA,

Flavors: Hibiscus, Plant Stems, Wood

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 8 g 24 OZ / 709 ML

Started This Month the 1st of March, with a 16 oz Bottle of GT’s Classic Original Kombucha.
What a Great Morning Starter, I Do Not Like or Drink Beer, (Excepting Ginger Beer). When Opening this Bottle today, It having been BEST USED BY 9/9/2015, it now being 6 months Matured beyond recommendation, It Now took on the Character of A Finely aged BREW, It seems that the Natural Alcohol Content Increased to a VERY ENJOYABLE and PLEASANT CONTENT.

The Book of Tea Okakura Kakuzo

The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times. – In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is noted to be accessibile to Western audiences because though Kakuzo was born and raised Japanese, he was trained from a young age to speak English; and would speak it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts in the Western Mind. In his book he elucidates such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
