2018 Yunnan Sourcing "Serendipity" Ripe Pu-erh Tea Cake
This tea is the result of a rather haphazard blend of ripe teas that I threw together one morning in April 2018. The result was surprisingly excellent and I tried several other ratios of the teas, but in the end the first one I blended was the best.
Lucy is featured prominently surrounded with explosions of spattered colors (illustrated by Timothy Sparling) on the wrapper of this cake. My relationship with Lucy has been one which has provided an endless reservoir of serendipitous experiences that have transformed my approach to life. Dogs live life in the moment, they never cease to be amazed by the endless variety of the world. She is an explorer and will always choose the path she has never taken, over the one she knows. Her thirst for experience and unbridled joy for living is something we can all learn from. The Chinese have a saying "狗来富", which means literally "Dogs bring prosperity", but can be understood as "Dogs bring joy".
This tea is full-bodied, complex and imparts warm nurturing cha qi.
