Tea on the beach
I felt something special, because it's on this same spot that I had my first sunset Chaxi on a beach 7 years ago. Time flies! The difference is that I've gone wild. 7 years ago, I was reproducing my tea room Chaxi with the same Chabu on the beach. Now, I prefer to blend in and play with what nature offers. The goal remains the same as with a Chabu: finding harmony while staying simple.
The tea I'm brewing is my 2016 winter QingJing high mountain Oolong. I doubled or even tripled the dose I'd usually brew indoors. The result was intense, but not harsh because it's not too young anymore and because winter Oolongs are sweeter. This energy felt inside echoed the energy of this sunset on the beach. What a wonderful way to remember this moment!
