We are a ritualistic people…

I’ve finally fallen into a bit of a tea rhythm…in process and spread…

Method and order – tea measured. Water heated and poured. My little phone timer set just right for periodic agitations…

My novice tea ceremony…

Cupping Harney & Son’s Queen Catherine

Hello Queen Catherine – it’s been awhile…having been dwelling in the world of strict Yunnan blacks, I find myself appreciating your certain briskness – Queenly Cold Shoulder – and throughly appreciate it…your Keemun-y stone-fruitiness is making me think of plums (and lingonberries) in anticipation of the Christmas season.

I dub you Queen Christmas Catherine…
