Sharon is a friend I have never met, yet we started communicating
about 6 years ago for work and have continued the friendship after I retired. She lives in Taiwan and I would love to visit her there someday. Recently another friend was traveling to Taiwan for
business and I sent a small gift along for Sharon.
To my surprise, Sharon sent me some tea.
The bag and container are so beautiful.
But even more beautiful is the tea.
It is Osmanthus Oolong. A lovely floral tea with small pieces of the osmanthus blossom in it.
This morning I will be enjoying a teapot of this beautiful tea.
You can see in the two small dishes the before and after of steeping.
It always amazes me to see the leaves unfurl and release the sweetness of the tea.
What is in your cup today?
