From Mandala Tea

Simply the finest Green Snail Spring we’ve ever had. Also, known as Bi Luo Chun and Astounding Fragrance, this tea is exquisite. Created from only the young buds of first flush spring tea, this expertly crafted green tastes like no other – depth, sweetness, spicy, round on the tongue, incredibly fresh, wonderfully complex.

With hints of umami and black pepper upfront, you will love the sweetness left at the back of the tongue upon swallowing this silky smooth drink. Delicate and rich, with a touch of vegetal astringency.

This may be the finest green tea we’ve sourced out of the Yunnan Province of China and we highly recommend giving this one a go while we have it in stock! When you get it, you’ll want to spend time just admiring the appearance of these tea little pellets of green tea joy.

Try this: Pour hot water into your tea pot or gaiwan prior to brewing. Let the vessel get good and warm, then pour off. Add the dry leaf and let the gentle heat warm the leaf for a few seconds, then smell. Yeah, that’s one of the greatest things your nose has experienced. Enjoy!

Yay, first fresh green of the year. Thick, sweet, smooth and round. My smart-ass boss asked what the phluck I was drinking (grandpa in a glass cup). I think he said something about seaweed. My work partner-in-crime said it looked like an anemone in the cup. For all the marine references, it’s amusing in a tea snoot way that I think this tastes like fresh, sweet scallops. Maybe I’m not crazy? I felt so crazy this morning, though, that I left work 2 hours in. Turns out the vaccine is kicking my ass 2 days later. Shame I’m glued to the bed with fatigue and aching arms and legs – it’s a beautiful day and the garden needs working.

Woah, a fresh tea?! (Can’t remember the last time she had one…)

Also, I oddly didn’t get the “vaccine fatigue” until 5 days after!

Get better soon :) !


Oh dear! Feel better quickly! I get shot 2 tomorrow.

2nd dose kicked my butt too.


Feel better soon! I got my second about 12 days ago. I had a slight rash but it could’ve just been the new detergent we’re using. hugs


I hope you’re feeling better! I can’t wait to get my first dose of the vaccine, regardless of the side effects.


All’s well. Hoping the worst of it came with the first shot. What is Ontario’s vaccination plan?


I think the U.S. is way ahead of us. We’re vaccinating everyone over 70 years old with the Pfizer and Moderna shots at mass immunization clinics, and offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to everyone over 40 (though there are supply issues). I’ll have to wait my turn until they start vaccinating younger people.


Also, I’m glad you’re feeling better! :)
