A deep and abiding love of Oriental Beauty

Living Tea’s Soujourn! And a quick thought from Bodhidharma!

If you use your mind to study reality, you won't understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you'll understand both.


Wuyi teas capture the ideal growing conditions of the region, surrounded by massive granite cliffs, rivers, and waterfalls. Masterfully hand-processed in the century-old traditional method, the ancient processing brings out the true spirit of Wuyi Mountain, an area with the perfect terroir for this special tea. Sojourn goes through four rounds of roasting with alternating indoor and outdoor drying. The flavor is smooth, rich, sweet, and maintains a pleasant hui gan, or cooling sensation in the aftertaste. With a slight astringency and great patience, this unusual tea offers a complex experience that is perfect for a warm summer afternoon.

The above rings mighty true for me! It is 90f in Louisville, KY at midnight and I am outside having a session with this unusual Oolong which I am dedicating to Living Tea!
