2013 A few Single Trees, maocha, from The Essence of Tea
A beauty of a tea session today, drinking this lovely maocha. It treated me to all sorts of interesting complexity the moment I started to warm the leaves. A wonderful perfume that continually evolves. But what I like best are the still moments between sips, when it really shows its essence. A profound deep calm, and occasional gifts of sweetness on the tongue, plus the many nuances of perfume filling the head. I feel blessed.
