Spiced Apple Keemun Steamer Series

This series was even more fun to produce than the tea blend behind it. Once I got started I didn’t want to stop but it was getting late and I hadn’t even touched my latest manuscript today so I finally had to call it quits. I’m up in the air though about how to post these: in an image gallery or as individual images within the post? In the last two Tea Art posts I used a gallery, so I guess I’ll switch it up this time. If you have a preference, I’d love to hear from you.

This is the Spiced Apple Keemun Tea Blend I made today and its what this whole series is based on.

From there, I started adding layers and landed here. I really liked the opalescence contrasted against the darker tones.

Since the first one was rather dark, I decided to lighten it up. This one reminds me of gumballs for some reason.

The next one I shifted more towards pastels but still kept that layer of opalescence and some darker tones for contrast. I also added a grid. It was so abstract that the additional layer of structure really works.

After this things really got fun and it was anything goes.

I have to say I’m really proud of this last one. The contrasting detail took a bit more effort but it was totally worth it. If I had to pick a favorite this would be it.
