Goji Tan San Shou Iced Tea Recipe

This winter I was introduced to Shou Mei and Moonlight white teas that became instant favorites! I adore the play between the sweet stone fruits and woody notes. With my first seep of each, I immediately knew once things warmed up here in Arizona I was in for some good times working on new ice… Continue reading Goji Tan San Shou Iced Tea Recipe

Gyokuro Cha Musume Series

Sometimes you just need to slow down and take a fresh look at the world around you. I did a lot of that this week. Nio Tea's Gyokuro Cha Musume was a thoughtful tea that inspired me to stop and smell the roses or in this case the poppies. Spring comes early to the desert… Continue reading Gyokuro Cha Musume Series

I do love free samples and Upton Tea Imports has been a valued vendor of mine for years. While they may have missed the mark with… Continue reading Season’s Pick Halmari Estate BP Series

Premium Dragon Well Long Jing Series

I really loved this Long Jing from Teavivire and found it very meditative. Wanting to expand my skills, I attempted to bring in some additional elements to my art this time. The piece of Lu Yu I think came out well, but the two of Quan Yin I'm on the fence with ~ as they… Continue reading Premium Dragon Well Long Jing Series

2016 Big Snow Mountain Series

I can't believe we're well into February 2019 already. Time sure does fly when your busy and I've been going, go, go since the new year started. Although I wasn't that impressed with this tea (a bit to dry for my tastes) I was inspired to branch out and try a few new techniques. I… Continue reading 2016 Big Snow Mountain Series

2013 Shou Mei White Tea Cake Series

Crazy week. Still learning the social media ropes & spent way more time than I should have on Instagram. Also had a rough time with this review. Turns out that foreign matter in sun-dried tea is not unheard of and I ended up having to revise the review for this tea after chatting with Yunnan… Continue reading 2013 Shou Mei White Tea Cake Series
