What Did I Learn From the Tour?
There are two elements in the world of tea that have helped drive a critical part of my love for tea: The experience of tea and the complexities of Japanese tea. Life is full of experiences.
When we explore the world of tea, for example, we see the labels, touch the products, smell the leaves, or perhaps try to understand what makes the tea stand out.
Perhaps, when we really think about our experience and tea, we have more questions than answers.
On the complexities of Japanese tea look no further than to these considerations:
- Why is the year’s first batch of Japanese tea so important?
- What makes it unique?
- Why has Japanese culture developed specific brewing instructions for some specific teas?
- The questions are seemingly endless.
