Brewing happiness one cup at a time.

Himalayan Green meets the ocean


by Niraj Lama May 02, 2016 0 Comments

It is always exciting to receive reviews from our customers. Tea is a personal experience – as someone rightly described, each cup is a voyage - so descriptions of the same tea by different people can vary. And, that enhances our own experience of the cup.

Himalayan Green Tea

Lisa Lynn is one of our regular customers – who is now become a dear friend. She often leaves behind reviews of our teas. They are always beautifully written and evocative.

Himalayan Green Tea

Here is her recent review of our Himalayan Green, a green tea (summer 2015) from Jun Chiyabari tea garden, Nepal. “This sublime Himalayan green starts with a round, almost buttery feel, cedes to a light sweetness, and finishes dry. It is a green that is suitable for any time of day. I am curious if anyone else finds the infused leaves have a fragrance that is reminiscent of an ocean breeze...”

Himalayan Green Tea

The last sentence was a wonderful hook. It inspired us to create an ocean “mandala” for our morning tea at our Tea Studio. The shells were collected by Mary during her travels around the world more than 10 years ago.

Himalayan Green Tea

The mandala made up of shells from different shores seemed happy to be held together by tea. A harmonious union between the mountains from where this tea had come, and the ocean in the form of the shells had been reached.  Now we could sit back and appreciate the tea more joyfully and smell the ocean breeze!

More photos for you to enjoy of our tea and ocean mandala.

I just got back from India after a two and a half week trip. Although it was not the intent but me and my travel companion, who in this case happened to be my 12 year old daughter, Tara, ended up "Chasing the Monsoons", like the travel writer Alexander Frater in his once popular book. And like Frater discovering -  in our case rediscovering - the overwhelming life force of India even as the heavens hosed down the sub-continent.
