Whether these mini tuocha came from White Antlers or from Mandala Tea, I don’t know. Either way, they were a gift of kindness :)

This morning, I stewed a 4.5g tuo in my work thermos to pour into a special mug. The mug is dedicated to shou and has an image of Prague on it, all in earthen tones. It makes me think of Martin Bednar and his benevolence.

Zendo is fresh and has very little leftover fermentation funk. I mostly notice it as that kind of nutritional yeast flavor I sometimes pick up on in shou. Barely cheesy, barely bready, entirely welcome. Zendo is like drinking smooth, wet rocks with a hint of sweet dark earth. Not getting chocolate or fruit like Mandala.

I really like Zendo as a daily drinker (I finished both mini tuo within 24 hours). It’s so easy and smooth, clean and mineral. Ah, comfort.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Earth, Mineral, Smooth, Sweet, Umami, Wet Rocks, Yeast

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 20 OZ / 591 ML
White Antlers

I sent them a few weeks after the Swedish Death Purge tea parcel because I felt bad about sending you aged tea. Glad you found comfort and enjoyment as well as fresh, young tea. : )

I really hope you will be able to see Prague once! I am too much benevolent when it comes to tea. “Drink all the tea!” seems is my motto. I am here sitting within boxes, I tossed out only once so far… I need to find some place, but I am busy with University those times.

The tea indeed looks like solid dailydrinker. Good for upcoming fall :) although fall in California is certainly different than Czech one. stops daydreaming about Cali
