Meh. I prefer more delicate teas in the morning because my palate is fresh and can really enjoy subtle flavors. This has just a touch of astringency, and may be good for someone who needs a stronger “wake up” tea. It’s okay, though. It’s malty, but not sweet, mildly woody and earthy and has some hay-like notes. It’s kind of “meh”, but we’ll see if it grows on me.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

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!
