drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea
417 tasting notes

Casey bought me some Mandala Teas for Valentine’s Day, and he let me open them up a day early…Oh, and he’s even letting me listen to Smokey Robinson tonight while we drink it. (He’s almost exclusively into metal.)

This one is wonderful. It ‘s unique among shou puerhs I’ve tried, and I’d say I’ve had a moderate amount of experience. What a treat! It’s somehow reminiscent of a fine caramel-filled chocolate. Yum.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate

Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

Tea means so many things to me, it is so deep and it is revealing new meaning to me all the time.

Tea is a mindfulness practice, and a doorway through which to explore different philosophies, cultures, and historical times. Tea is hospitality and a way of communion. Tea is an art, a ritual, and a tradition. Tea is a complement to the foods I eat (preferably vegan desserts) and is something I enjoy collecting and curating.

I love to swap, or even just send people samples, so if there’s anything in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message!
