seeing ~ our friend Aaron’s Hualong (fish transforming into dragon) teapot. This very beautiful and rare teapot by Shi Fusheng is made from mixed ZiNi clay, and truly transforms the tea experience.
feeling ~ lucky and blessed to have tea enthusiasts as next door neighbors and friends
smelling and tasting ~ several fantastic teas! my favorite was this wonderful Milk Oolong by Mandala tea….rich with the naturally occuring aromas and flavors of coconut, butter and toffee. definitely ordering some of this from MandalaTea.
hearing ~ Cassandra’s Tibetan singing bowl, played by her son Monty
knowing ~ sharing tea with friends is a great way to start the day
