Déformation professionelle of the tea practitioner:
When you see a yuzamashi or gong dao bei, instead of a milk jug - and start fantasizing about your next tea session before you've even paid for it...
Today: Handmade jug by @ghostwares.
Last week: porcelain cups by @linogirl_.
Brewing @mei_leaf Baked Goods. The smell of the lid of the gaiwan after having placed the dry leaf into the warmed up gaiwan was exactly that: baked goods. It was divine. Heaven. Unbelievable. .
With regards to TGY, it is interesting that when I first started to discover teas, I loved baked TGY very much. I felt it gave me energy. So much so that I was careful not to drink it past 5 or 6 pm.
Then... about 10 years ago I was visiting a tea factory in Fujian and I discovered what they called "fragrant" TGY. The buttery aromas of flowers made my head spin. I fell passionately in love. I was convinced that this style of green oolong was superior. Better. More special. More valuable. I could imagine drinking this for the rest of my life. I became obsessed with jade oolongs and Gaoshan.
But my horizon steadily widened and I discovered Dan Cong & Wuyishan Rock teas, and so, slowly, dark roasted oolongs took-over.
Nowadays, I will enjoy a jade oolong from time to time but I won't get out of my way to get them... even though I immensely enjoy the really good ones.
Such a great first season for @mel_oneup87 at 10u. She was a bit nervous about pitching but persevered. Mom and Dad were always there to catch her if she fell.
Will continue to work hard during the off-season so she may step into Spring Ball with even more confidence. Thanks to everyone who was a apart of this terrific season from coaches and support staff.
Follow @mel_oneup87 as she will continue to strive for greatness and be involved in so much.
Позвольте себе с этого момента иметь – безусловно и безоговорочно. Не единожды, а постоянно. Если вы не будете ждать мгновенных результатов, а будете продолжать позволять себе иметь, в один прекрасный день свершится то, что другие назовут чудом.....)
Next weekend I am off to the most magical place on Earth! I can’t wait for my very first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, new meet and greets, our adorable costumes, Food and Wine Festival, and so much more! ✨💙🏰💙✨
