Thsi is the best China Lapsang Souchong Black Tea that I have tasted so far. It is not just the smokiness which was reminiscent of my hubby and I camping and backpacking on one of the Appalachian Trails that gets me, it is the meditative state that it puts you in. I mean, I felt so relaxed and meditative after drinking this tea.

I tried this tea alone after a long day at work, and it relaxed me and put me in a state of meditation as though I just finished my daily 4:30 AM yoga practice.

I also tried this tea with a meal of a vegan BBQ Mushroom sandwich of saute mushrooms and onion in a spicy homemade BBQ sauce that I made at home. I placed the BBQ mushrooms and onions on a hard toasted roll with a topping of a coleslaw marinated in apple cider and sugar. A southern BBQ sandwich but veggie style that paired perfectly with this tea. The BBQ sauce and the smokiness of the tea reminded of a summer outdoor BBQ with family and friends. A perfect tea alone to meditate or to pair with a fun BBQ meal.

Late 40s tattooed teapunk drinking, sci fi, steampunk, and comic book reader and knitter, who enjoys the tea experience with my meals, a good sci fi or comic book, jazz, or Cha Dao with peaceful Tibetan style music and incense to create my home Cha Dao experience. I practice yoga daily. If you do not find me doing a meditative long 1.5 hr walk on weekends then I am cycling. Mother of an American Bull Dog and Red Nose Pit – dogs are my children :)

A fictional character I would love to have tea with and become friends is fellow tea lover Star Trek Officer and Vulcan High Command Officer T’Pol. Everyone picks Jean Luc Picard but I would love to have tea with T’Pol who seems so much more interesting. Otherwise, I also see myself as a space explorer visiting planets and enjoying tea time with new friends on other planets.

I am also an author of a motivational and vegetarian cookbook who tends to pair my tea every night with my meals.

My first love is Chinese black teas but also love other black teas from Indonesia, South Korea, Kenya, Himalyas and more. I love world cooking and world teas. I also love green teas that have a vegetal and maybe seaweed quality. I drink my teas naked, unless I have a herbal tea before bed such as an ayurvedic tea as a “yoga” tea where I will add almond, coconut, or soy milk with honey or agave.
