Q:What is your favorite tea?
Hi there! Thank you very much for your question. I would say, I have my favourite teas that suit my current mood. I recently developed a huge love towards Darjeelings and I don’t hesitate to lay down half of my month’s earnings for them. But if I went on a lonely island and would be allowed to bring only one tea, it would be Oriental Beauty Oolong. Oriental Beauty was my first love, the one which taught me sensibility, diligence and awareness. And also the tea, to which my very first yixing teapot is devoted:)
This sheng puerh cake was pressed manually by somebody who never tried it before (me), therefore it’s much looser than bought cakes. Nevertheless, tastes good.

Thank God and Universe I’ve found this blog.
And guys, do you also always look for reflection of the photographer? (:
A cup of tea consists of 99 % water.
Already the great Chinese tea master Lu Yu said that water is as important compound of tea as are the tea leaves.
Do we pay enough attention to the quality of water we use to brew our precious teas?
