I was really hesitant when I first brewed this tea. The liquor was very, very pale. But when I first caught a whiff of the aroma, I was excited by the smell of nectarines (my favorite fruit), which I had never experienced so vividly in a tea before. This is also one of those finicky teas which start to oxidize immediately upon brewing. The color was turning brown within just a few minutes. I decided to put the leaves back into the teapot after pouring my first two cups to see if I could get more flavor from this. I like this, but I don’t love it like I was expecting to. It has great qualities – so full of fruit flavor with just a hint of floral, cream, and vegetal notes. But it’s also kind of on the weak side, and doesn’t have the kind of sweet, long-lingering finish that makes me fall in love with a tea like this.

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!
