Beyond the window...translucent rain drops, gathered and held on bright green, rain-washed branches: the day itself is "tea," the very air, steeped in rain: rich summer earth/soil scents, wet fence wood, moist/acrid garden plants, all carried through the open window in an invisible waterfall of cold air that drops with the drips into the tearoom and shifts moist and sweet, unseen, over my face and arms. With this setting, I pour a Jin Xuan (金萱烏龍）sample gathered at the World Tea Expo: 4 grams of rolled leaf in an Andrzej Bero, red clay, 70ml pot, with 95 deg. C water, for six rounds. It's rich, perfumed, starfruit, milk, butter cream, floral combines with the day's rainy scents. The tea stream from pot to pourer gurgles improvised music with the falling rain as steam dances and disappears into the room's cool air.
