Hojo's Ali Shan
In contrary to many people, I actually prefer the first brew of a tea; it's the sweetest, creamiest and most fickle brew of them all. When it's hot, it's sharp and flowery with a hint of caramel sweetness yet to come. When cooled down a little bit, it becomes the opposite: thick, caramel creamy; I almost dare to say vanilla-ish.
One last picture to end this blog. The contract of the red clay and the dark green tea laves is magnificent, it reminds me of big red mountains covered with trees. When soil and plant embrace eachother again, wonderful tea is the result.
