I entirely under-appreciated this tea on my first go with it a while back. Every time I revisit one of these teas, I realize how inexperienced I was when I started cracking into samples over a year ago. Today, under wonderful snowed-in conditions, it breathes hearthy mushroom flavors up front, finishes with a long draw of cool mint. With a satisfying texture, bright yellow color, and an absolutely delightful theanine buzz, it’s hard for me to say anything bad about this tea. The only downfall might be that it’s fading a touch earlier than I expected.

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
