Description

This Tea is from ancient trees and you can taste it immediately. And if you’re like me, you’ll keep on wanting to drink it.

Hint of smokiness, balanced strength, touch of astringency, bitter and sweet all together rhyming in.

Great Qi and affordable, this is one of the finds I’m most proud of! (It took a lot of tasting an otherwise somewhat boring tea collection to find this gem).

Finished drinking it half a hour ago, the taste is still so strong in my mouth, usually teas with this combination of great strong taste and depth and duration of aftertaste are minimum $300-400.

Qi is bright and clear (hence the name), making me feel not just “everything is okay” but “everything is okay and my awareness is very sharp”. The Qi is not “jumpy” but very stable and clear.

It’s still got some greenness and “power” that will transform over the years, the first cups are sharp (some bitterness turning into astringency) but very quickly it turns smoother and by the end of the session it can be steeped very long without producing bitterness.

(Samples available now, cakes and tongs in stock first days of May)

Meditation

The most difficult thing is always to keep your beginner’s mind.

There is no need to have a deep understanding of Zen [Tea]. Even though you read much Zen literature, you must read each sentence [drink each cup] with a fresh mind.

You should not say, “I know what Zen is,” or “I have attained enlightenment.”

This is also the real secret of the arts: always be a beginner. Be very very careful about this point.

If you start to practice zazen, you will begin to appreciate your beginner’s mind. It is the secret of Zen [Tea] practice.

(Shunryu Suzuki – “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind”)

[Text in this formatting mine, following “Zen and Tea are one flavour” motto]
