Today I got the chance to make lots of different tea for people who came over, and it felt wonderful.
I was able to make an eclectic verity of things:
- Some Lapsang Souchong for someone who was getting over a gold and claimed he could not taste anything at all. (He was able to taste the Lapsang though!)
- An incredible bamboo aged Pu-Er which I bought from Norbu Tea. This is one of my personal favorites, and it was a great pleasure to share it with others who lacked exposure to Pu-Er teas.
- A Sen Cha Fukamushi from Shizuoka Japan, which really pleased someone who said he wanted a strong cup of Japanese green tea. (I also brewed a “regular” Sen Cha, also from Shizouka for the sake of comparison. It went over well too.)
- A Hoji Cha because so many people have never tried it. People kept saying, “This is a green tea?” Almost as thought they did not believe me.
Being able to have people try all sorts of different teas is something that I think is an amazing experience for me. I feel so very fortunate that I’m able to offer this range of teas!
Overall a wonderful tea session , or #teasesh as it would be called on Twitter. I hope to get a chance to do this again soon.
