drank Silver Needle Premium by Rishi Tea
16 tasting notes

I would have to say this is in my top 3 favorite teas. I think it has great qi and makes my cheeks pink when I have it first thing in the morning. It is probably my favorite tea to have first thing in the morning. When I taste it I can see the leaf bud on the plant taking in the dew of spring. I really like the sweetness this tea offers. It is high in amino acids and low in catechins which is why it has such nice sweetness. The sweetness of amino acids to me in synonymous with the fresh taste of spring.

I use more than the recommended amount and higher temperature. I like to get a rich mouthfeel and extract all of the goodness from the leaf. I let it infuse until I have a deep yellow infusion. (Over night cold brew is also delicious!)

I live and love the way of the leaf. I am a passionate woman who is full of fire and life. I love all that is around me. I gather energy from within, the sun, the moon, my family and friends. I love growing and tending plants and feeding people.

The following are a few of the things I lOVE:
*cooking food
*feeding people
*white tea
*japanese tea
*taiwanese oolong

Drinking tea while pregnant is A-OKAY! Baby does kicks for high mountain oolong and Gyokuro.

Always smiling. The love that surrounds me is food for my soul. Let me share my nourishment with you.
