To me, the perfect morning cuppa is fresh green tea. This is some high quality Dragonwell that Adagio is now beginning to source through their new Sub-Comp. “Masters Tea”. The leaves are thin, vibrant green/yellow, and with a heady sweet aroma and dashes of tangy fruits like tangerines, pineapple, mango, and papaya. It’s quite a bouqet! I brewed this several different ways, but i recommend a glass teapot (6oz), a small handful of leaves (2.5g) and brewed at 185F with the lid off. The broth is an opaque yellow with silky chestnuts, mild vegetle tones, and sweet clean finish. It’s a great tea, and again its a perfect start to a day!

We’ll have to agree to disagree about our perfect morning cuppa – but, regardless, this does sound lovely! Also, following you on IG now, and kicking myself because I didn’t realize I wasn’t already!

Yunnan ancient tea trees rarely cease to amaze and this offering is no exception. This sheng or ‘raw’ pu erh offers long, silvery buds and young leaves. The dry leaf aroma is of fruit and earth, while the infusion is medium-light amber. Very smooth with hints of honey, apricot, a soft sweet smoke. Layered and lingering.
