Yesterday i began to prepare for spring by beginning spring cleaning. I'm clearing out another kitchen cabinet so I can spread out my tea and teaware. The double width cabinet will be for greens and whites and the single width cabinet will hold my still small but growing puerh collection. Since I had all the puerh out on the kitchen table for a bit I tried out some of the puerh samples.
Today in honor of spring I'll start the day with a some of my small remaining supply of Tai Ping Hou Kui. It's so green and fresh-tasting even though it's last year's harvest.
Well, yes, I'll be experimenting with new teas this spring. Some of them are affiliated with spring, like shincha. I've never bought it before and looking forward to the experience.
It's taken me all winter to find the direction I'm headed with roasted teas, so I've been buying some more wintry teas this spring too. I have a feeling they will not destroy my seasonal clock when drinking them though.
Other - I'm in the process of trying some "new to me" teas, but would be doing so even if it wasn't spring. After some suggestions in the Pu-Erh forum I placed a small order for some samples from Jas-eTea.
I started off this TeaDay with some Russian Caravan.
