2014 Du Quan puerh from Essence of Tea

Sampling some newly pressed sheng puerh from this year’s spring harvest. It’s the teas that linger pleasantly in the body and haunt the mind long after, beckoning return, that are worth seeking out. Such is the hallmark of great beauty. A memorable tea, a moving piece of music, a great work of art… momentary blessings can sometimes etch deeply into the soul.

“It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it.” Voltaire

“Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil.” ¬† -Kahil Gibran¬†
