oohh how quickly time flies...
And today's tea is the "tie kuan yin" tea which has a slight woody taste to it.
These came handy in little compressed packages to keep them fresh.
And I brewed them in my little peach themed tea pot and "longevity" tea cups.
Did you notice the other cup between the teapot and the cup of tea? Well that's the "smelling cup"
In traditional chinese tea making, the tea is first poured into the smelling cup before the tea cup itself
after which one would take in the aroma of the tea from the smelling cup.
I am looking forward to post the steps to traditional chinese tea making next week.
Happy Tea Tuesday!!
