Description

We drank this and got merrily, merrily tea drunk.

Ryōkan Taigu, enlightened zen master, mad hermit, fool, all in one, is one of my tea drinking and awakening “heroes” (if someone that thought of themselves as a fool can be called a hero!)

This Tea is so Ryokan that it doesn’t get just a poem, but an entire book!

One cake comes together with a copy of “One robe, one bowl – The Zen poetry of Ryokan”.

It really tastes like wild tea, quite different from other puerh, great qi, some pleasant smokiness, great huigan, well aged so without any unpleasant strength, just a well balanced strength.

Drink away and forget the world!

Meditation

Always, when I was a boy,
I would play here and there.
I used to put on my favourite vest
And ride a chestnut horse with a white nose.

Today I spent the morning in town
And the evening drinking amid the peach blossoms by the river.
Returning home, I have lost my way. Where am I?
Laughing, I find myself next to the brothel.

(Ryokan)

A friend kindly sent us this video, possibly to play along for the first part of your Tea Ceremony.

    Best value for money enlightenment tea has to offer!
    Great tea, great qi and flavour for an incredibly low price. A bit more energetic than some of the others I’ve tried, but still just as smooth and not ‘jumpy’. Some of the other teas are more specifically for meditation, whereas I find this to be more versatile- great for conversations with friends but also a deep enough qi to be helpful in meditation. Highly recommended.
