Not much Super Bowl over here in old icy Norway
However, that does not mean that I don`t fill my cup with something nice. On Sundays I usually have a relaxing session opening with making the place spotless, lighting up some Japanese incense, putting on some nice relaxing music (today it was our very own jazz genius Jan Garbarek with the album In Praise of Dreams which is a mix of jazz and spiritual new age), then some tea. Today I opened with some Grand Oolong Top Fancy, which is a 70% oxidized Taiwanese oolong, Gong Fu Cha style. It is heavy on the woody notes but without the tanins often associated with them, it has a sweet overall taste and in the later infusions the sweetness becomes clearer and clearer and I got the taste of honey. After the 4th infusion the leaves really opened up releasing a very delicate floral smell from the brew which was there for the rest of the ceremony.
Later today I`m gonna enjoy some Tamaryokucha, gotta have my daily dose of green tea
Have a nice Super Bowl people!
