This is pretty delicious. I’m kinda glad that I don’t love love it, because this sample was very expensive. It’s interesting. The rinse (which of course I drank) was slightly chocolatey, but that note seemed to disappear in subsequent steepings. This tea has strong malty characteristics, some umami flavors, earthy shitake mushroom notes, and mild florals (perhaps due to age?), I also get some baked potato aroma, the finish is creamy and the smell at the bottom of the cup is sweet. This is a very good tea!

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!
