The dry leaf smells so rich and mouth-watering. The spindly purple-black leaves are strewn with little red safflower and blue corn flowers. The biggest scent on the dry nose is definitely the cheesecake for me. There is a sense of a booze-soaked plum resting on top. Ooh, that would make for an AWESOME dessert….

As for the steeped liquid, I am not as impressed as I was on the dry leaf. The tart plums come to the front, and the brandy second. I get the thick and creamy mouthfeel of the cheesecake, but it is a fainter tail note.

Flavors: Brandy, Creamy, Plums

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
