I have been in a bit of a tea lull awaiting the new season’s first options. Last year it was all about Shincha, this year just one tea is calling my name and it is Arya Pearls from Arya Estate. I had this tea about two years ago and it has haunted me ever since my meager supply ran out.

I have been doing a lot more artwork these days, especially inks and watercolors. I occasionally post up new stuff at:

In my cup has been a mixture lately of leftover Japanese greens I am trying to finish up, Bi Lo Chun, Jasmine Pearls, plain old Ceylon, and an occasional Wu Yi oolong or two. Let me know what you are drinking and looking forward to this year!
