This wonderful sonata creates an image of brown reddish leaves while a campfire is cracking in front of you and an echoing melody of the coming winter breezes around your cheeks and ears. While nature is preparing for a resting phase a deep earthy mushroom soaked by rain spiritual bouquet enlightens your experience and put your mind at ease – it’s

just you and this aged cup of tea!

Already it’s aroma of aged agarwood, sandalwood, oak moss and a thick layer of camphor plus a sweet impact of apple turnover or baked apple creates such a wonderful atmospheric image of late Autumn with a its natural changes and harbingers of the Christmas season. This silky soft bronze liquor immersing you into such a delicious adventure of those already mentioned light smokey late Autumn campfire nuances. What a delight!

There you find the earthiness and fallen leaves aspects of Autumn followed aged Chinese old wooden furniture with the dense touch of camphor to it while this whole constructs gives you a warming feel with a steaming baked apple between your hands but in a more subtle performance. There is definitely a medicinal feel to it which gives you an overall feel of standing in the middle of an old Chinese herbal TCM shop with all its old wooden furniture and scents of nearly everything the surrounding nature can offer while outside a fine wind is whistling through those earthy colored forest canopies. In fact there is so much popping up in my imagination while enjoying this precious aged Sheng – but isn’t it better to discover your own journey? Guess you need to find out! ;)

I am a tea taster and tea-blog author from Vienna. Since my early Childhood days I was always drawn to East Asian culture especially China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. It wasn’t a thing I discovered because of my parents or my environment – it was a thing that started on its own and spread its antennas into nearly every direction what Asian culture could deliver.

I felt in love with their history, movies, Tv-Shows, food, Anime, Videogames, tea culture – nearly everything. 2009 was the first time I visited Japan – it was a feeling of finally being home. Since that time I developed such a passion for tea because tea combines so many aspects I love. Taking photos, writing, Asian culture, the connection to mother nature and its history, the love for craftsmanship (Teaware etc).

Within 2013 I started my teablog called ZeroZen(https://zeroteazen.wordpress.com/) – the first couple of years I only posted content in my mother language German. But within 2016 I discovered Instagram for myself and found the perfect medium for my artistic output which is now completely and exclusive in English ^___~
